Bouncing back after the Toddbrook crisis, Whaley Bridge is bustling again- in pictures

Just over a month since Whaley Bridge came under threat in the Toddbrook crisis, the town is already bouncing back.

This weekend saw a thriving FAB market arrive in town for the first time since the town was evacuated, along with a fundraiser at the White Hart Pub to raise money for baby loss charities along with emergency services that battled to save Whaley during the emergency.
