Over 2,600 sandbags were delivered to 80 locations across Rushcliffe to those vulnerable or at imminent risk of flooding as the Borough Council’s waste and Streetwise teams responded swiftly to Thursday’s rainfall.
Crews from both organisations worked continually from midday on Thursday (November 14) through to the early hours of Friday morning to distribute the bags.

The Council’s Housing team also quickly intervened to find bed and breakfast accommodation for families who needed to be evacuated from their homes in Tollerton with 15 properties affected in the area.
Some bin collections on Thursday November 14 were postponed but waste teams shall attempt them as soon as possible.
