Council hosts free legal drop-in hub for storm advice

A DROP-in hub offering legal advice will be open at Long Eaton’s town hall tomorrow (Thursday 26 October) for people across the borough affected by Storm Babet.

Erewash Borough Council and Derbyshire Law Centre have organised the free session amid a huge clean-up after floods hit 500 homes.

The law centre’s experts will be available to give advice from 10am to 3pm.

Residents including those displaced by the storm can get independent guidance on dealing with worries such as housing, problems with landlords and queries over insurance.

Erewash’s Deputy Leader Councillor Becca Everett, who is Lead Member for Community Engagement, said:

       “We are only too aware that this is an awful time for those affected. The council is pulling out all the stops to provide help and is grateful to Derbyshire Law Centre for its assistance.”

People can just turn up without the need to make an appointment. Those unable to make it on the day can contact Derbyshire Law Centre on 01246 550674 or 0800 707 6990. They can also text 07781 482826 or email dlc@derbyshirelawcentre.org.uk
