    Together with its partners, Doncaster Council is continuing to work around the clock to provide support and resources for people caught up in the major flooding around Doncaster.
     
    The areas affected by severe flood warnings are:
     
    • Kirk Sandall
    • Barnby Dun
    • South Bramwith
    • Kirk Bramwith
    • Bentley
    • Willow Bridge
    • Thorpe in Balne
    • Trumfleet
    • Fishlake
    Residents in Thorpe in Balne, Trumfleet and Fishlake have been encouraged to evacuate their properties and have been helped by the council and its partners to do so.
     
    Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster and Damian Allen, Chief Executive at Doncaster Council, said: “Our thoughts are with the residents affected by what has been a major event to hit the borough and the region. We want to pay tribute to our communities for their fantastic response in helping neighbours, strangers and the most vulnerable. We are also grateful to tremendous support from the police, fire service, health, voluntary groups, council staff, local ward members and all our partners who have been working tirelessly around the clock to help our communities.
     
    “It has required a highly complex set of responses. This hasn’t been solely one event in one location, it has been a series of events taking place at different times and different locations over an extended period of time and it isn’t over yet. It’s been a big effort but we’re on top of it.
     
    “Since the torrential rain on Thursday, we’ve had over 20 flood warnings and nine of these have been severe. It is very difficult to predict and control future events. What we have done and are continuing to do is work with our partners to respond appropriately in an organised and coordinated way as new issues emerge.
     
    “We are still in incident mode and recovery will continue into next week. We encourage concerned residents to contact our public information phone line on 01302 735688 or visit Doncaster Council’s social media and website for the latest information.”
     
    We are continuing to post the latest updates on social media and encouraging residents to contact the public information line (01302 735688) with urgent enquiries.
