Firefighters were called to a home in St Michael’s as they continue to deal with the aftermath of extensive flooding.

A fire crew was called to pump out water from a cottage in Rawcliffe Road this afternoon.

Meanwhile, the nearby A586, which has remained closed, is due to reopen to traffic tomorrow.

Lancashire County Council has confirmed that the A586, the main route into St Michael’s from the west, will reopen on Wednesday afternoon.

Councillor Roger Berry, Cabinet member with responsibility for flood and coastal defences at Wyre Council, said: “Now the flood water has receded and flooded houses have been pumped out, our priority is to help residents clear their homes of water damaged property and rubbish, and to clear the roads and verges of debris.

“Our mobile advice centre remains in the village and is proving an invaluable focal point for residents to get help and advice on a variety of matters.”
