Volunteers have been coming forward to help patch up a popular cycle route in Preston.Advertisement
The Guild Wheel, a 21-mile loop of the city, has been affected by the Boxing Day floods.
Part of the river bank and footpath has come away on the section round near Brockholes.
Preston City Council has been forced to close the route from the A59 near the Tickled Trout to near Mete Farm.

A spokeswoman said: “Unfortunately we have now closed part of the Guild Wheel until further notice, so that our team can clean and repair the flood related damage to the area.
“The closed area runs from a northern point from the A59 near the Tickled Trout to at southern point at Mete Farm.
“We are sorry for the inconvenience and will let you know when it is again open to the public. Thanks for your patience!”
