Although it has now been a long time since the major floods in 2007, that by no means guarantees the future; despite all the good work done by the EA, councils, Severn Trent and individual householders it could happen again – and we had some very narrow misses in the winters of 2010 and 2014. There are parts of our city that will always be vulnerable, especially close to the River Severn.

And as the winter is always likely to be more dangerous, so I encourage all my constituents to be aware of, and maybe save, these links in case the worst happens.
Meanwhile do please sign up to getting flood alert e mails and texts via https://www.gov.uk/sign-up-for-flood-warnings or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188.
