In the wake of Storm Ciara's devastation on 9 February, Billington in Lancashire witnessed the calamitous flooding of around 40 homes. The cause? The River Calder's unchecked surge as it overflowed its confines. Tragically, the affected properties on Longworth Road were not alien to such catastrophes. They had endured similar flooding on Boxing Day 2015, a memory that still lingers among the residents. Some even expressed to the BBC their challenges in affording insurance, given the recurring nature of these flood events.
