The RSC said: “Our flood defence volunteers and the friends of the blue loop have a job on their hands after a month's worth of rain fell in just 24 hours, bringing tons of plastic and debris to the banks of the River Don.

“We're going to need your help.

“We've got a number of regular volunteer days to help with the clean-up.”
