Asked about the number of bridges that were potentially at risk, the PMS said 1800 in total but he did not know how many Highway Agency bridges that included; it was a very small number as these bridges carried dual carriageways and other motorways across the county.

Asked how food and vital supplies would be transported to the affected areas, the PMS said that this had already started. There was provision being made in some of the community centres. What we had to be driven by was the advice from the people on the ground, such as the police and people in charge of health and safety; properties may be safe but it was only when they were completely secure that people could go back.

Asked how people would go about buying goods if banks had not opened, the PMS replied that he was not the best person to give a detailed response to that question but he was sure that there would be provision made to enable the local community to maintain a decent lifestyle whilst they were recovering from these problems.
