Good sense from the Shropshire Wildlife Trust

From the Shropshire Star:
Shropshire Wildlife Trust has urged the Government to stop building on flood plains in a bid to stop future river misery.

The Trust says the current crisis stems from years of building on flood plains, and over-reliance on man-made flood defences and the removal of wetlands which can act as natural sponges, soaking up water and slowing it down in times of flooding.
