A “VERY late” assessment of Bradford’s risk of flooding is due to be signed off by Council bosses on Tuesday.

The new strategy has four aims:

1. getting a better understanding of the flood risk so works can be prioritised

2. allowing authorities and communities to work in partnership to manage flood risk

3. ensuring emergency plans are effective and communities can recover quickly after flooding, and

4. guiding planning and preventing inappropriate development.

... and the answer to the heading question is (according to Bradford)

The document says a succession of Atlantic storms last November and December caused “unprecedented” flooding in the district, with all four large main rivers - the Aire, Wharfe, Worth and Silsden Beck - bursting their banks simultaneously for the first time.

When I went to school Silsden Beck would have been classed as a tributary to the River Aire.

We always called it the "River Cobby" Peter, the official must have been in our class!

I have always thought it was the river Cobby, and that's why we all live in Cobbydale.
