It wasn't even for Lewes, it was for the Lower Ouse from Barcombe Mills to Newhaven which somehow doesn't include Lewes, so yes stand down and get a grip

surely that includes Lewes.. or do rivers just skip certain bits.. the difference was it was a Flood "Alert" Lewes didnt have a "Warning". big difference

Rivers generally widen as they approach the sea and Lewes has better flood protection than up stream, so there is flooding at places like Barcombe & Isfield more often than in Lewes.

It would seem appropriate that if anywhere were to be flooded that fountain house should be the place, might wash-out some of the dirt that's built-up there..

I had to chuckle this morning when I heard on the radio that the people evacuated from flooded homes in Littlehampton were being accommodated in the swimming centre in Sea Road.

Dave, not really with it at mo - tonsillitis - hence I wrote Warning instead of Alert. Didn't think I deserved to be told to get a grip, was just passing on an EA message, doing the neighbourly thing and all that.

ADT, you are a good person and thank you. Considering the rain at present you may be right after all??
