South Yorkshire Floods Anniversary

I've been busy re-visiting some of the places that were devastated by flooding in South Yorkshire twelve months ago to . Last Autumn was the wettest on record here. It led to 1,200 homes having to be evacuated. Since then the Environment Agency has spent twelve million pounds bolstering flood defences in the area but is warning that the risk of flooding is going up because of climate change. I enjoyed travelling around filming people's stories to make this report.

  1. What a horrible situation for those families and businesses - especially since the problem will get worse with climate change.
