British flood protection plans flawed, lawmakers conclude

8 Jun 2016, TRF

Britain is failing to protect communities from the growing risk of flooding, says a report by a cross-party group of lawmakers. While there is national policy in place to plan for flood prevention, local authorities were not supported in implementing their own plans. The committee is calling for a more pro-active approach from the government.
