It’s 4 days since the Christmas floods hit Salford.
The River Irwell burst its banks, creating a beach of mud in some parts of the city, and leaving a four inch layer of it in over 400 nearby residential properties in Lower Broughton.
You couldn’t find a mop or cleaning materials for love nor money in Salford yesterday. Today, donations are flooding in (excuse the awful pun). Much of the mud outside has now gone, but there’s an odd brown/grey covering on everything from the ground up to about a foot high on walls, railings, houses and cars.
