Greg demands answers at packed flooding meeting

Following Tuesday night's flooding, Greg held an emergency meeting on Friday to demand answers from Kent County Council, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, Southern Water and the Environment Agency.

Greg said,

"Lives and livelihoods have been repeatedly ruined by flooding, and the various responsible bodies must take every step they can to minimise the risk.

"A number of clear problems emerged from the meeting ranging from the clearance of drains, insufficient capacity and an inadequate response.

"I am now forming a working party of affected residents and businesses to oversee the response by the agencies responsible to ensure it deals with the problem comprehensively."
