Torrential rain triggers flood warnings

Published: 11 Jun 2012 09:302 comments

TORRENTIAL rain has triggered flood alerts for rivers across Berkshire today (Monday).

The Environment Agency has issued "be prepared" warnings for a stretch of the Lower River Loddon from Hurst to Swallowfield, running through Arborfield, Shinfield, Sindlesham, Lower Earley, Woodley, Barkham and Winnersh.

There is also a warning for the Emm Brook running through Wokingham.

The Loddon Bridge Park and Ride is open, although bus stop two is shut.

The alerts comes as the county braces itself for even more rain with the Met Office warning of heavy downpours in the South East over the next couple of days.

    The average guy is always the one to be shafted. Firstly we get the opportunity to buy something that we already owned when the company was privatised . And then when the company is bought by the Australian company Kemble Water the deal is financed by vast borrowings payed for by.............yes, you guessed it ............the profits from Thames Water, so effectively the average guy is buying this company by way of paying TWA bills so that TWA debts can be met.

    Arfur Daley could only dream of a scam this big !
