PEOPLE who are still feeling the effects of Storm Desmond nearly two years on are invited to a special surgery with MP Tim Farron next week.

Residents and business people can simply turn up to Sandylands Methodist Church on Friday, October 20, from 5pm to 7pm - there is no need to book.

The Westmorland and Lonsdale MP said: "Nearly two years on from Storm Desmond and people still regularly contact me saying that their homes or businesses haven’t fully recovered from the floods.

"I would invite anyone who was affected by Storm Desmond, or who has concerns about future flooding, to come along to the surgery next week and I’ll do what I can to help.”
