UK Flood Barriers offered support to a family who were victim to catastrophic flooding in Hereford last August by donating and installing innovative Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Barriers.
The Roberts family lost almost everything they owned when the torrential rain conditions led to a combination of water, mud and a deluge of debris entering their hill-side home on the second floor, resulting in the ceiling crashing down and flooding the ground floor. Only days later, they were again hit by another flood of severe intensity, with equally devastating results.
As the family did not have adequate home insurance to cover the damage, local councillor Russell B. Hamilton sourced donations from national and regional companies and also approached UKFB as a local flood defence company. This event was just one of hundreds to occur across the UK, as the country endured the wettest three months on record from April to July 2012.
