Just weeks after some of the worst floods in living memory displaced thousands and caused over a £1 billion in damage, it’s happening again. Flash floods are occurring up and down England and Wales, with meteorologists predicting up to 10cm of rain over the next twenty four hours.

Five people have had to be rescued by firefighters from the roof of a building in Barry, whilst the Hampshire and Berkshire are worst affected, with many roads closed. There have also been electricity cuts up and down the country. Do we really need any more conclusive evidence of climate change after the freak weather of the last month?
