Why not clear out the river?

Have your say

why does Yorkshire Water do nothing about the floods that keep happening along the banks of the river Calder through Mirfield?

Why doesn’t it dredge the river anymore? I can remember it used to be dredged regularly. I think everyone know that this would help to reduce the chance of the river bursting its banks, by lowering the river bed.
