NRW: 'No further immediate risk of flooding'

Natural Resources Wales say there is "no further immediate risk of flooding" and that the focus will now be on "supporting the communities affected" and helping the area recover.

Our thoughts are with the people who have had their homes flooded. It is a devastating experience and we are doing all we can to support them at this difficult time.

The high tides and gale force winds caused the highest tides we have seen for more than 20 years. Over the next few days the tides will not be as high and the storm surge has passed. There is no further immediate risk of flooding.

We will now focus on supporting the communities affected, the emergency services and the local authority to help the area recover.
