The very best of our River flood defences are being tested and at their outer limits. Our fields and hills saturated Winters in the UK have turned increasingly wet and climate change is changing the way we live and where we live and points to wetter winters to come and more record-breaking River levels vast weather fronts creating rivers of water falling from the sky.

Creating more Chaos and misery.
