Three months on from the devastating floods which hit places including Ilkley, Bradford Council is launching a review into what happened.

As part of the review, it's asking people to share their experiences and suggestions on how improvements can be made.

Information will be gathered from members of the public through an online questionnaire.

Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, Chair of Bradford Council's Corporate Scrutiny Committee said: "These responses will help inform our public meetings, so I would urge everyone affected by the floods to submit a response, even if they plan on attending one of our meetings.

"It's vital we get this right. We want to ensure we respond efficiently to extreme incidents and people get the help they need."

Over 900 homes and businesses in the district were affected by the Boxing Day floods and the authority has provided financial help worth over £1.3 million.

It's paid out hundreds of flood recovery grants and given a three-month discount on council tax and business rates.

The council has also received dozens of applications for grants to help protect homes and businesses from future flooding.
