A special local flood committee has been set up ready to spring into action if Cardigan falls victim to flooding again.

A steering committee for Teifi Ward has been set up with local residents, councillors and the emergency services.

This week the committee met with officers from Natural Resources Wales and Ceredigion's emergency planning department to firm up the community flood plan.

Residents will be informed by alerts from NRW plus local text alerts if there is danger of flooding with a rest centre earmarked at St Mary's old school.

The committee also has information on vulnerable residents or people who will need help.

"The text tree has already been put into action with the floods at the end of January so we know it works," said local county councillor Catrin Miles.

The next spring high tide is on March 31 at 9am.
