A community which was struck by flooding in June last year has been putting its flood plans to the test this weekend. Volunteers from Tal-y-bont in Ceredigion have been re-enacting a flood scenario to test the arrangements for a similar event, as Sarah Powell reports.
One of the villages hit by severe flooding last June is at the centre of an emergency exercise this weekend, to see if new flood protection measures can prevent such an event happening again.
Volunteers in Tal-y-bont in Ceredigion are re-enacting a flood scenario, with residents checking if they can install flood gates quickly, and with a trial of the roles members of the community will play in an emergency.
Once the exercise is complete agencies will work together to identify areas where the flood plan can be strengthened. Natural Resources Wales say a new flood warning service for the village is due to go live in Autumn 2014.
