Shropshire's response to the flooding

Twenty volunteers from St John Ambulance in Shropshire were actively involved in supporting the public in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire from Saturday morning until Monday morning.

Six emergency vehicles – three ambulances and three 4x4s - were deployed over the weekend and members helped assist with evacuations of residents and nursing homes that were being threatened by the rising flood waters of the river Severn.

In addition to the assistance given to these areas, Shropshire volunteers continued to provide first aid cover at local events.
