We were expecting family today but got a phone call from my sister in law who lives near Todmorden to say that the flood warning sirens were going off in Wallsden at 07:30 this morning and now the area is under water, and so are parts of Todmorden.
Our son phoned a few minutes later to say that he had been out and couldn't believe what he saw. There was flooding with water up to the bottom of peoples windows and cars were under water from the flooding.
I had to go down into Bacup to get a few things from the shop and took my video camera. Here is a little of what I filmed!
Before you watch the video we should all put some thoughts to those unfortunate folk a little further north than us who have lost everything for the third time in the last month. My heart goes out to them and to anyone else who has suffered from flooding problems recently!
