Flooding in Keighley
Janetta Banerjee

There are fears the walls on main roads in Silsden could completely collapse if there were any repeat of the flooding.

It'll mean the closure of Bradley Road for twelve weeks and roadworks on Keighley Road for around six months, although it won't be closed. 

 The council says it knows this will be inconvenient - but if the work isn't done, people's safety will be at risk, and the roads might have to be shut for a long time.
