After the flood
The amazing torrential rain of Friday 20th July – another nail in the coffin of Summer 2007 – caused flooding problems for many people. Now the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea wants to find out who was affected and where the worst of the local flooding took place.

The Council plans to map the areas hardest hit so these can be studied and the findings presented to Thames Water, who are responsible for maintaining London's drains and sewers.

Councillor Daniel Moylan, Deputy Leader of the Council, said: ‘It is clear that some local drains were unable to cope with what was thrown at them on Friday 20th. Why was this the case? Was it solely to do with the torrents of rain or could more have been done to make sure that the drains did what they are meant to do and take water away?

‘The Council wants to be able to show Thames Water a map of the parts of the borough let down by its drains and is asking residents and businesses to contact us to let us know just what happened to them and their property.’

If your home or business was flooded then please contact the Council with details of your address and the extent of the flooding by emailing David Broadley or calling 020 7361 2061.
