During extreme weather conditions flooding can take place.
There are lots of different organisations that can help during a flood. Who to contact depends on the type of flood and the source of the flood. It can be difficult to understand the type of flood as there may be several different factors involved, such as nearby rivers but we have detailed who to contact in the event of a river and road flood.
Sea and main river flooding
Storms and heavy rain can lead to river and sea flooding. Large scale flooding like this can cause a danger to life and property.
You should contact the Environment Agency when major rivers flood, or storms cause coastal flooding.
Call the Environment Agency 24-hour floodline on 0800 80 70 60.
Small river flooding
You should report flooding of small rivers, streams and brooks to your local council.
