Council to discuss Calder Valley flood defence proposals

Proposals to reduce the flood risk in the Calder Valley will be discussed at a council meeting later today, over two years since devastating floods hit the area.

Caldene Bridge

Calderdale Council's Cabinet will examine two flood schemes, one of which could see the relocation of Caldene Bridge in Mytholmroyd.

This would see the bridge move 25m upstream to allow for the widening of the river.

Up to £1.6m of funding from the European Structural and Investment Fund could support the project.

The other proposal could see the creation of new wet woodlands, grasslands and aquatic habitats.

The Council's cabinet member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Barry Collins, feels the scheme will boost local business.

“These two schemes would be a real benefit to the Upper Calder Valley, both minimising the flood risk and adding value to the environment.

Watch: Flood prevention volunteers in the Calder Valley

Volunteers in the Calder Valley have been building dams to help prevent flooding.

It's two years since the big downpour on Boxing Day led to thousands of homes being flooded.

Since then, a project called Slow the Flow has recruited more than a hundred people, to help create natural defences on the hillside.

Three properties in the Calder Valley have been flooded after a bout of heavy rain.
Footage of flood water running through a house and street in Calderdale is filmed by social media users.

Woman in 50ft car fall thanks 'amazing' rescuers

BBC Yorkshire Live

A woman who had to be rescued after her car rolled down a 50ft ravine near the M62 in West Yorkshire at the weekend says she wants to thank "the amazing people" who rescued her.

Crash
Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team

Rochelle Garner, from Ripponden, West Yorkshire, lost control of her car on Sunday on the A672 near to Junction 22 of the M62 as she was following her partner in the car in front.

She said: "It veered off the road and I didn't hit anything for a little while and then it rolled three times. It was surreal, I couldn't put it into words.

"I just wanted to get out of the vehicle as quickly as possible and I was still strapped in. I managed to push the door open and climb out."

Rochelle says her head has been left swollen by the accident, but otherwise she has minor injuries.

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team were called out to help her: "I remember them pulling me up the hill, I was on a stretcher and I was being pulled to the top."

Rochelle was released the same night and says she's still sore, has cuts and bruises, hurt her left leg and suffered dizziness and she's now resting up at home.

She says she particularly wants to thank Stephan Gray and Jonathan Stigwood who were first on the scene:

I just want to thank them all from the bottom of my heart. I'm not sure if there are any words I could say really. They're all amazing people."
