One thing I will say, the rural communities will pull together and help each other. One farmer with 500 ewes to start lambing is now flooded, had nowhere to put them as his barns are under water. Within a couple of hours other farmers, out of the area had arrived with wagons and taken the ewes to lamb them.
Yes social media is really helping and organising people to send forage. Tesco has been using it's lorries food lorries to deliver big round bales and farmers all over the area are doing their bit to rescue and feed animals.
Charlotte Dujardin has also been helping to coordinate offers of stabling aid via her management team and webpages.
