Clean-up begins in main street
THE township of Laidley is now in clean-up mode.
The main street from the Uniting Church in the south to the railway line in the north was affected.
Residents and business owners were taking stock of the damage.
The Laidley NewsXpress and FoodWorks appear to be worst hit.
The wall of the Chinese restaurant has collapsed and inundated the bookshop with food.
Laidley resident Margaret Strahan said the pavers in front of the Salvation Hall were lifted from the adjacent footpath along William Street and dumped in front of the hall by the floodwater.
