There is much to commend local authorities for in how they have responded to and managed recent flooding events. However, in every emergency response there are lessons that can be learned to better inform us for the next event.

We will look at the communications between the different agencies involved and the preparedness of different organisations to carry out their respective responsibilities in order to identify ways to improve our response to future events.
