Work continues to help those affected by flooding


Coastguard volunteers and staff worked throughout the night to help those affected by the flooding in parts of East Yorkshire.
A wading team, in full water rescue kit and with an inflatable sled, assisted Humberside Fire & Rescue Service with door knocking, giving safety advice and helping with further evacuations. Teams are still ready to respond once more if needed.
Coastal Operations Area Commander Matt Atkinson said: “Our amazing volunteers and full-time officers have really gone above and beyond in the last few days, with many dropping everything to travel to assist with the flooding and to help those in need.”
