The Environment Agency have issued a flood alert for the River Calder between Todmorden and Brighouse for tonight (Saturday).

A statement on the agency’s website said the expected downpour between 11pm and 5am could cause surface water issues.

There is expected to be very heavy or even torrential rain during the night which the agency says could lead to flooding from smaller, fast responding watercourses.
