St Asaph and Ruthin floods anniversary marked

The first anniversary of floods in which one person died and hundreds of homes and businesses were affected is being marked by events in Denbighshire.

Lights will be floated down the River Elwy in St Asaph which was hardest hit with over 400 properties flooded.

Residents in Ruthin will switch on lights in contrast to when the floods plunged their newly-built Glasdir estate into darkness.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) said it was working to prevent future flooding.

Matthew Richards reports.
