Tadcaster Floods September 2012
Tadcaster Floods September 2012 – Tadcaster was hit by a severe rain front for 2 days solid and the river just had to go somewhere…
Bridge street was hit by the latest flooding which affected several businesses. Flood water seeped from the drains and into the road which closed the bridge amid fears of structural damage. It seems that the worst of the flooding was on the East side of Tadcaster where more businesses were affected..
The cleanup process has already begun and business should be back to normal in the area very soon.
Several Fire tenders, Police and Environmental agencies have attended this incident and it seems that the worst may be over.
(Update) We have now been told that the bridge in Tadcaster will be closed for the next 2 days (approx) until the river level drops, this is so that engineers can assess the damage. The bridge was closed when water was seen seeping through the bricks. The highways agency have now erected fencing on both sides of the bridge to prevent it from being used.
The walkway across the viaduct has been reopened to allow people to cross the river, this also makes it easier for pupils of Riverside School rather than having the 7 mile drive around the outskirts of Tadcaster.
Here are a few images which show the flooding at its peak.
More news will follow soon.
