Mayor of Rhyl welcomes public response to floods

A relief fund is being set up to help the hundreds of people in Rhyl whose homes were flooded with sea water caused by a storm surge.

More than 400 residents were forced to leave their homes on Thursday with many looked after at a holiday camp.

Some have been allowed to return home to assess the damage and make insurance claims while others are still waiting.

ScottishPower has been working to restore supplies to 350 properties while train services remain disrupted.

The mayor of Rhyl, Andy Rutherford, told Peter Johnson of BBC Radio Wales he welcomed the public response to help those flooded out of their homes.
