The Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA) Tewkesbury team is helping rescue people in Leeds city centre as flood water has damaged much of the area.

The organisation which is one of the largest independent lifeboat service in the UK, second only to the RNLI, is doing all it can to help the flood effort. Crews are still in the south west should people need them.

While our teams are in the North of the country helping those affected by the flooding we still have crew available at all our stations covering our local areas and rivers.
