Burnley Council will hold a drop in advice and information session for residents who have been affected by the Boxing Day floods.

This will be held on Tuesday between 2pm and 6pm at Padiham Leisure Centre in Park Road and residents are able to call in at anytime.

Council Leader Mark Townsend said: “After the work carried out by the emergency services, with a lot of support from local volunteers and residents, the focus now is on taking action in the coming weeks to help people and businesses get back to normal.

“Burnley Council has received confirmation that government funding will be extended to those households affected, and this is welcome.

“We’ll be working closely with partner organisations over the coming days and weeks to distribute these funds, and we will try to make the process work as smoothly as possible.”
