Basement flood shuts Edenbridge War Memorial Hospital

A Kent hospital has been shut and patients have been relocated after flooding brought down the facility's computer and telephones systems.

Edenbridge and District War Memorial Hospital, which has 19 beds, has also been closed to outpatients following the basement flood on Tuesday.

The hospital said patients had been moved to Sevenoaks and Tonbridge.

Head of operations for West Kent, Nikki Clark, said: "Engineers are working quickly to fix the problem."
