Nottingham Council responds to impact of freak storms

A special Nottingham City Council response team was set up on July 23rd to help people affected by flash floods caused by the torrential rain.

Around 100 calls have been responded to with 250 sand bags handed out to residents to help protect their properties.

The council dealt with storm damage in 17 different areas including damage to road surfaces and displaced manhole covers.

An incredible amount of rain fell yesterday in a short space of time and when this happens unfortunately some flooding will always occur.

We put together a team of staff who were ready to respond to calls from residents, hand out sand bags and deal with incidents of storm damage across the city. A big thank you to them for their hard work last night.

– Councillor Jane Urquhart, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Transport
