Flood Emergency numbers

Never assume the authorities already know about flooding you may have encountered. These helplines can be used to report flooding incidents:

Northants Highway flooding       0300 1261000  (between 8am to 6pm)
07000 782112   (out of hours)
Motorways                                       0300 1235000
Rivers overflowing                         0345 9881188

Sewers   Anglian Water                 03457 145145    (use option 1)

And just because we’re uphill from the River Welland, it doesn’t mean our village can never be flooded. Too much rain falling in a short time can overwhelm the storm drains, saturate the ground, and cause flooding while the water has nowhere to go.

East Northamptonshire Council’s free online Flood Toolkit explains how to prepare and who to contact in case the worst happens. Please read it now, to save precious time if we’re ever unlucky enough to need it.
