Dover District Council is working with Kent Police and partner agencies to evacuate 178 properties in Sandwich.
A door-to-door evacuation is taking place. If you are not informed that you need to evacuate, then there is no need to do so at this stage. If you are asked to evacuate, please ensure your property is secure, including switching off any gas and electricity supply. Please take any necessary items with you, including medication.
If you have been told to evacuate and choose not to go to the Rest Centre or elsewhere, please make sure you inform relatives.
Dover District Council has set up a Rest Centre at the Sandwich Sport & Leisure Centre (Sandwich Technology College) on Deal Road, Sandwich."
