A council said it will step in if it has to if flooding in the borough gets worse.

Trafford Council is prepared to take action if the flooding situation in the borough forces people from their homes.

Currently, floodwaters have not put anyone at risk of having to abandon their properties, but Trafford Council has reassured people it is ready to step in if it has to.

Over the weekend, high river levels led to the Environment Agency setting up a 24 hour control room near the banks of the River Bollin.

Trafford Council staff were out with residents in Little Bollington near Altrincham, piling up sandbanks as flood waters inched closer to people's homes and fields were flooded.

After the Bollin swelled, pictures showed the river almost reaching one property's walls.

Trafford Council staff assisted at the 24 hour control room and were on hand to bring sandbags when needed.

That control room has now been stood down and it's hoped it will no longer be needed.

But more rain or snow, as well as some strong winds, has been forecast by the Met Office for the North West next week.

Helen Grant, Trafford Council's strategic manager for crime and antisocial behaviour, was out with residents over the weekend.

She shared pictures of the levels of the River Bollin and thanked staff from Trafford Council and Salford Council for their work supporting residents.

A spokesperson for Trafford Council said: “Trafford Council is closely monitoring the situation regarding the River Bollin and has asked the Environment Agency to keep us informed of any changes.

"At this moment in time, we have not had to rehome any of the residents or become more involved.

"However, one of our Emergency Planning Officers has been on site and arranged for 250 sandbags to be delivered to the home of an elderly resident.”
