The Big Clean Up
The day after the Flood ..... and Hebden Bridge was a hive of activity. The West Yorkshire Fire Service was busy with pumps and hosepipes, and a lot of other company vans were also in evidence.
The heartbreaking thing was seeing people piling up their possessions on the pavement - totally ruined - and having to sweep/shovel mud out of their properties.
Pictures of the Flood do look dramatic, but this is now the reality ... a muddy, stinking mess...
We've had a lot of publicity on the evening news - my collage shows Harry Gration arriving to give his report for BBC Look North.
