St Asaph defence plan tested two years after flooding

Flood defence plans for St Asaph are being tested in an exercise, two years after it was swamped when a river burst its banks, killing an elderly resident.

Police, fire crews, flood wardens and water and electricity engineers are taking part in the scenario.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) said the role play will test evacuation drills.

Margaret Hughes, 91, died when the small north Wales city was inundated after the River Elwy overflowed in November 2012.

Matthew Richards talked to Tim Jones of NRW.
