VIDEO: Flood event in the Market Place

Waiting for Video...

An event is being held today to mark six months on from the December 5 floods and to give advice on flooding in the area.

The Environment Agency, Boston Borough Council and Citizens Advice Bureau have been joined on the market by businesses such as B&Q, Royal Sun Alliance and UK Flood Barriers to offer advice and demonstrate their products aimed at protecting against flood.

The advice to householders and businesses will include making the most of available Government grants and ways in which they can help prepare themselves by signing up for flood warnings and making flood plans.

There are also a limited number Floodlock flood defence door protection strips and the chance to win £2,000 of flood protection by signing up to the Flood Alert systems.

The event runs until 3pm.

In the video above representatives of Boston Borough Council and the Environment Agency explain a bit more about the day.
