Flooding in Scotland

Our hearts go out to the communities of Scotland badly affected by flooding over the last 24 hours. Overnight the west of Scotland has been badly hit, with the north seeing flooding later on. It is now being reported that the south of Scotland is at risk of heavy rainfall and localised flooding. 

Media news articles on the flooding:

Luckily Freuchie has only experienced a small amount of rainfall over the last 24 hours – only 11.1 mm in the 24 hours previous to 9am this morning and 2.1mm since. It is only a matter of time before Freuchie is in the news again as properties are flooded. We cannot be complacent in our campaign for a full flood study and flood prevention and protection projects.
