Residents in parts of Wakefield near Nelson have been on alert through the night in case the need to evacuate. The warning to prepare to leave went out late last evening to people living between Pigeon Valley and Arnold Lane near Spring Grove. And they were told to keep their phones on in case they needed to be contacted by Civil Defence. For the latest our reporter Tracy Neal is at the emergency control centre in Richmond, near Nelson.
