Floods latest

Flooding in the Don Valley. Picture from Business Link South Yorkshire.

Over the last few days the floods have moved down the Don Valley from Sheffield and Rotherham to Doncaster. Rotherham station is still closed and there is disruption to travel around Doncaster. However, the sun is shining at the moment and the waters are receding. But there is still the possibility of more heavy rain at the weekend.

The Don Valley which suffered the brunt of the flooding on Monday is a major industrial site and industry in Sheffield has been seriously hit. Unfortunately, Business Link South Yorkshire which might have been a major source of help to affected companies is also located in this area and was itself badly affected. Today they were able to circulate an e-mail update containing a list of useful contact numbers. The above picture is taken from this e-mail and I have added the list of numbers below. (Stop press. I have added two extra numbers given out by Radio Sheffield)
