Thousands celebrate flooded towns' recovery


Thousands of people have been taking part in events to celebrate the Calder Valley's recovery from severe flooding.

Mytholmroyd, Todmorden and Hebden Bridge were badly affected by flash floods in June and July.

The Valley of Lights events, staggered over 10 days, include night markets, live music, fire dancers, parades, floating barges and street performers.

BBC Look North's Spencer Stokes visited Hebden Bridge to watch its parade.
