With all this flooding non dredging of rivers is to blame, so our experts tell us. In addition to this why don't we enlarge our reservoirs so that when we get more than 3 days of sunshine we don't get a hosepipe ban . Just a thought.i hope all the people affected by the floods recover very quickly our thoughts are with you
