Climate change is predicted to increase the frequency of extreme weather events, including flooding. It is more important than ever that we are all prepared to cope with flooding.

Whilst the risk of flooding can be reduced, it cannot be prevented entirely. However, there are a number of simple steps that can be taken to make sure we are prepared before a flood happens.

To help you prepare and develop your own personal flood plan, we have produced a Flood Guide. This will help you make arrangements in advance such as finding out if you're at risk, registering to receive alerts and making simple preparations.

You can visit the National Flood Forum website for further information on flooding help. The MET Office also has information on staying safe in a storm and driving in severe weather.

Remember to always call 999 in an emergency.
