Buckingham Palace has announced that Prince Charles will visit flood victims in and around Hebden Bridge on Friday.

Accompanying The Prince on the visit will be Stephen Howard, Chief Executive of Business in the Community, Tony Reeves, the chief executive of Bradford Council, who is the regional ambassador for BITC and Steve Holliday, the chief executive of the National Grid, who is also an ambassador.

A whole month’s worth of rain fell on the Calder Valley in a few hours on the night of Friday, June 22.

This caused damage to 900 properties in Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd and Todmorden.

The River Calder was at its highest ever recorded level.
