What happens to your post during flooding?

The Royal Mail is storing letters and parcels it cannot deliver at local sorting offices and people are able to collect them if they take appropriate ID.

The firm says it is helping people who have been forced to leave their homes.

On its website it says: "We will also be providing a free Redirection service for flood victims who have had to move out of the area temporarily and therefore wish to have their mail delivered to an alternative address."

ENVIRONMENT AGENCY

With the threat of flooding in our area, the agency has issued the following advice:

  • Act now to protect yourself and your property.
  • If it's safe to do so, block doors with flood boards or sandbags and cover airbricks and other ventilation holes.
  • If you are caught in a flash flood, get to higher ground.  Stay away from flood water and don't take risks. 
  • Move family, pets and valuables to a safe place. 
  • Keep a flood kit ready including a torch, batteries, fully charged mobile phone, warm clothes, water, food and any prescription medicines you may need.
  • If it's safe, make sure your neighbours are aware of the situation and offer help to anyone who may need it.
  • Avoid walking, cycling or driving through flood water.
  • Turn off gas, electricity and water if your property is about to flood.  Never touch an electrical switch if you are standing in water.
  • Call Floodline on 0845 988 1188 for up-to-date flooding information.
  • Keep an eye on local water levels and weather conditions.
