Reporting flooding on roads

If the fault is categorised as an emergency, our telephone number will be displayed so that you can call us instead. This enables us to prioritise the most dangerous hazards in the county.

Protecting your property / Sandbags

Generally it is the responsibility of the property owner to protect their own property. Some borough or district councils may provide sandbags to aid with this.
Please see the Environment Agency website for further information on protecting your property.
