What actual measures have been put in place to prevent flooding like we had on Boxing Day 2015? The water levels of the Rochdale Canal have been very high for weeks now and there does not appear to have been any manual movement of water through the canal locks. With the current heavy rain, the power of the river increasing, the likelihood of flood seems very high. And there is little evidence of any action other than some river dredging months ago.

"Over the last few months we have heard a lot of evidence at public meetings, from emails and from submissions sent to us. Our next job is to consider that evidence and make some findings from it. But we want to make sure that we have got it right and that we have not missed anything. So we would like to talk through the evidence and our findings with you at this meeting. Please come along and have your say."
