A Message from Cllr Heledd Fychan on the morning of the 20 January.
"Many people have contacted me, worried about the risk of flooding. The river is high and fast flowing in Pontypridd this morning and obviously concerning as it is still raining. But, for residents, please keep an eye on this for the latest updates and be reassured that it is nowhere near as high as last February at present and no red river warning:
My heart goes out to communities across Wales that have experienced flooding again. It’s a disgrace that the Welsh Government has refused an independent inquiry, as has our local MP and MS, as we need to learn lessons from previous floods to understand the risk of floods in the future to ensure we invest in flood prevention measures.
I will keep campaigning for justice for those affected, and I’m glad that Plaid Cymru has committed to an inquiry if we are leading the next Welsh Government."
