People living in Hampshire are being encouraged to clear ditches on their own land in a bid to help prevent localised flooding this winter.
The advice, from Hampshire County Council comes following heavy downpours and a tornado in the county over the weekend.
Residents are also being asked to ensure that piped sections of watercourses that lie under driveways are kept clear as it is these restricted locations that are often the most vulnerable to flooding and need the most attention.
