The up-and-coming episode of a popular BBC show will focus on the recent floods that have devastated a Buckinghamshire village. 

Countryfile, which airs every Sunday evening, will talk about how those based in Chalfont St Peter are currently dealing with heavy rainwater contaminated with raw sewage.

Residents in the civil parish have expressed frustration at Thames Water, Buckinghamshire Council and the Environmental Agency over a lack of action.

This comes after many houses and independent businesses were flooded at the back of 2023, before heavy rain in February this year caused one of the village’s main car parks to be closed for several weeks.

The cordon met numerous shops losing out on customers.

In addition, some residents in Chalfont revealed sewage had entered their properties, with one admitting it had come through her kitchen sink.

Protests have also taken place in the village following the lack of action.

The episode will air on May 19 at 7.15pm.
