Communities in Lancashire at risk of flash flooding are being given guidance on creating action plans.

The Environment Agency is helping communities understand the risks of flash flooding and become more prepared.

That includes people living near the River Lostock, Shaw Brook and Bannister Brook in Leyland, which has been identified as at risk.

Caroline Berry, flood resilience team leader for the Environment Agency, said: “While we cannot prevent rain or flooding entirely, we can help communities become more resilient, which is why we want to increase awareness of the dangers in vulnerable areas.”
