A DROP-IN event to report on the progress of Otley's flood alleviation scheme has been cancelled.

Residents had been invited to attend Otley Core from 4pm to 7pm on Thursday, March 1 to find out more about plans to protect local homes and businesses.

The event has now been postponed due to the severe weather and will be re-scheduled.

The Government announced £2 million of funding for the flood alleviation project after Otley flooded three times at the end of 2015.

The work is being led by Leeds City Council, working closely with the Environment Agency.
