The iconic rock guitarist was left fuming after many of his and his wife Anita Dobson’s prized possessions were destroyed following intense downpours in the capital.
And livid 73-year-old blamed the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council for being ‘responsible for all the misery that is going on in my neighbourhood.’
Taking to Instagram, Brian revealed the floor of his home was soaked in dirty water that had also caused damage to his carpets and priceless childhood memorabilia.
“I don’t know where to start really,” revealed an emotional Brian, as he shared two videos of the damage to his luxury home after it was flooded by sewage.
“This is still floor with water. Stuff strewn everywhere, disgusting,” he told his 2.8 million Instagram followers.
He blasted in an accompanying caption: “This devastation is a direct result of the infamous RBKC allowing the ruination of our quality of life.
“These are the same people who scandalously allowed the wrong cladding to be put on Grenfell Tower leading to the loss of so many lives.
“The same people who allowed a vast area at the end of Kensington High street historic buildings to allow the building of the – 1, Palace Gate monstrosity by developers – in spite of almost the whole population of Kensington objecting.
“The same council that has allowed selfish basement building b**tards to ruin the lives of residents for endless years with the noise, pollution and destruction of our habitat by purely speculative basement construction.
“The RBKC have been called one of the most corrupt and negligent borough councils in England.
“I hold them responsible for all the misery that is going on in my neighbourhood tonight. It’s time they were held to account. Bri.”
Rock legend Brian got a huge shock when he returned to his West London home after spending a day at The Royal Holloway College celebrating being awarded an honorary fellowship.
He and his wife Anita, the former EastEnders actress, were alarmed to find the whole lower floor of his beloved property drenched in dirty water and many of his possessions decimated as a result.
The damage left his carpets and antique rugs ruined, but more upsetting was that many of his and his wife’s precious keepsakes had been ruined.
“After a nice day at The Royal Holloway College, we came back to horror in our house,” reflected Brian.
“The whole bottom floor had been inundated with a sewage overflow – which has covered our carpets, rugs and all kinds of precious (to us) things in a stinking sludge.
“It’s disgusting, and actually quite heartbreaking. It feels like we have been invaded, desecrated.
“Anita had a lifetime of memorabilia on the floor of our basement – and most of it is sodden and ruined.
“I had rescued all my most treasured childhood photo albums and scrapbooks from my studio house because it was threatened with a forest fire some months ago.
“Where did I put it all for safety? In the basement here in Kensington. Irony. Today it turned into a sodden mess.
“I’m devastated – this stuff is only ‘things’ – but it feels like Back to the Future when the photograph fades – feels like a lot of my past has been wiped out.
“I’m angry. Historically, for 150 years, Kensington has never flooded due to rainwater. Why did this happen?
“It’s almost certainly the result of all the basement building that has been plaguing this area for the past 10 years.
“The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council was warned years ago that sinking so many deep basement extensions would obstruct the aquifers underneath our living space and render the drainage system ineffective.
A council spokesman said: “Our priority is to make sure residents who have been affected by last night’s flooding have the help they need.
“Overnight we have placed 120 residents in emergency hotel accommodation and are making emergency repairs this morning.”
He added the council is making welfare calls to “vulnerable” residents and support centres have been set up in the area.
“Flash floods have affected boroughs across London after sudden and torrential rainfall,” he added.
“This is causing damage and disruption across the city, not just here in Kensington and Chelsea, and is not linked to basement building.”
Heavy rain caused havoc in various parts of London, with cars submerged as roads filled with water and train services cancelled.
And like Brian, many homes were left damaged the flash floods, especially in West London including Barnes, Richmond and Raynes Park.
