Flood defences taken down in Bradford

Wiltshire Times: Flood defences taken down in Bradford Flood defences taken down in Bradford

Flood defences that have protected Bradford on Avon for the past three weeks were removed from the river banks this week.

The defences in the Bull Pit and Westbury Gardens were supplied by Bristol City Council when the town faced further flooding last month after the deluge of rain caused the river to rise once again.

The town’s mayor, John Potter, has expressed his desire for the town to purchase its own defences, to be stored at the fire station, so they can be set up rapidly when a flood warning comes in.

He is meeting with the flood team at Wiltshire Council this month to discuss what the town’s options are.
