How You can help fight flooding.

I was at a North Yorkshire County Council Craven Area Committee today. The Highways officer present told us that keeping culverts clear from any cable, no matter how small, was essential to prevent them from blocking and so exacerbating any flood risk. Those of us who live in rural areas know there are numerous blocked culverts. The Highways officer said if blocked culverts were reported they would be cleared. After the recent heavy rain, with probably more to come, please help North Yorks CC Highways by reporting any blocked culverts. According to a Highways officer you may just avert a flood. You can report blocked culverts online here.
