PARTS of Cardigan were subjected to flooding this weekend after the River Teifi burst its banks.

A flood alert had been issued by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) on Friday, October 27 for the Ceredigion coast between Clarach and Cardigan due to a combination of predicted high tides, forecast winds and wave heights.
