Flood waters surge through Hebden Bridge

West Yorkshire Fire Brigade were at the scene today to clear standing water from Burnley Road in Mytholmroyd and pump out the cellars of a mill.

Calderdale Council said Hebden Bridge library had to be evacuated, a number of roads were cordoned off and sandbags were stacked in flooding blackspots.

A spokesman for the council said: "A very heavy cloudburst above the hillside on Keighley Road has resulted in a large volume of surface water overwhelming drainage systems in Hebden Bridge."
