Jeremy Corbyn praises Whaley Bridge community's 'incredible spirit'


Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn hailed the "incredible spirit" of the Whaley Bridge community, volunteers, emergency services and public authorities as he saw the ongoing repair work on the damaged dam. Emergency work to prevent a damaged dam from bursting is continuing, as residents refusing to evacuate their homes were criticised for putting lives at risk. Thirty-one people, including a "small number" who were initially evacuated but have since returned to their homes, remained in 22 properties in the town on Sunday evening.
