Photos: Ribble Valley floods drama

Torrential rain and gale force winds saw parts of the Ribble Valley flooded for the second time over the weekend.

As our images show, motorists had to negotiate flooded roads across the area and particularly in Sawley.

Clitheroe Fire Station received several calls from worried residents but watch manager Dave McGrath confirmed there were no major incidents in the Ribble Valley.

He said: “We were called to support our colleagues in Cumbria and Lancaster which was very badly hit.

“But if there had been any major incidents in the Ribble Valley where people were put at risk we would have attended.’’
