Leeds firm’s rescue mission for flood-hit communities



Have your say

A Leeds firm is riding to the rescue of flood-hit communities in the south of England.

Cross Green-based HESCO Bastion is using techniques it normally employs to keep troops safe in war zones as it repairs flood defence breaches in and around the Somerset Levels.

Made from wire mesh and lined with tough fabric, HESCO’s force protection equipment has been pressed into action in every major conflict since the first Gulf war in 1991.
