Yesterday, the doctor's, the chemists, the food shop and the off licence were open, while others were still struggling with the flood fall-out.

"Every floor surface and first shelf was covered in mud and there was the debris of stock everywhere which had been moved by the water...it was like the river had passed through it" explained Joe from K's Chemist which was engulfed by around eighteen inches of water...

SALFORD FLOODS CLEAR UP BEGINS AMIDST RECRIMINATIONS

Star date: 27th December 2015

NO WARNINGS AND FLOOD GATES DIDN'T WORK SAY RESIDENTS

Today a huge post-flood clear up began in Lower Broughton with families disposing of virtually all contents of downstairs rooms. While neighbours, friends and council refuse collectors helped clear the debris, many of those the Salford Star spoke to were angry that they received no warnings that their homes were in imminent danger, and that `Flood Defender' gates handed to selected households didn't fit properly.

One 75 year old resident told the Star how she waded through waist high water and was left freezing for over an hour at the height of the flood.

"I don't have heating on until night time and have to cut down on my food bills. They're putting us into hardship, it's disgraceful. And there's a lot more like me..." Ernie Spencer, 84

City West Housing Trust, a charity which made a surplus of 14.7million this year, has imposed big increases in charges for reduced support services that are supposed to help people to live independently at its sheltered schemes.

In the run up to Christmas, the Salford Star spoke to some residents who live in City West's sheltered housing in Walkden and Little Hulton about the effects on their lives... "We've been told `If you can't afford it or don't like it, move'" says one resident who is registered blind. City West's highest paid director received `emoluments' of 168,259 last year, a rise of over 15,000.

"We grow citizens and got nowt, while our Mayor invested in growing mushrooms. That just about sums up our Mayor." Graham Cooper, Oliver's Youth Club

Three years ago, at a time of huge cuts, Salford City Council handed 300,000 to the Manchester International Festival as sponsorship for the Biospheric Foundation's `innovative city farm' in Blackfriars, with Salford Mayor Ian Stewart announcing that it was "money well spent". Another 100,000 came via the Festival itself.

Salford City Council is to introduce tighter eligibility criteria for children with disabilities... "Some families will see a reduction in their current support package following a reassessment of need" states a Council report.

Salford Council argues that the changes are a "redesign" but behind the `redesign' are cuts totalling 290,000 from the Children with Disabilities Service and the Short Breaks budget. Just under half of parents who responded to the Council's dodgy consultation said that their child would be affected by the changes.
