You will have seen in recent weeks how devastating flooding can be and how the impact can be, and is, being felt by communities for weeks and months after the rain has finished falling and the tides have receded.


Whether it be flooding from rivers, the sea or from flash flooding, the risk to communities and businesses is often significant. Across the country around 215 communities have been identified by the Environment Agency as being at risk of flash flooding, with 125 in the North of England alone.
