Swift action to tackle verge-side erosion at Wilberfoss Beck by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council has been praised by Ward Councillor Andy Strangeway.

The Council’s Highway Maintenance Team is considering carrying out some local gully improvement works in the new financial year.

The work to unblock the kerb offlets, churned up by cars parking on the grass, would improve the drainage and stop potential flooding.

Cllr Strangeway said: “This is a great example of how a resident, ward councillor and ERYC working together not only get things done but also get things done promptly. I would like to thank those who raise issues like this at my surgeries especially those in Wilberfoss and Stamford Bridge. Well done ERYC for its prompt action.”
