Flood risk strategy
THE prolonged heavy weather in Scilly has prompted a strong warning from the island council's environment and climate change officer.
David Senior urged a rethink on coastal defences after listing a litany of damage caused on the individual islands by the January storms.
He said: "There is now an urgent need to develop a revised flood risk strategy for Scilly."
There was a strong possibility that climate change impacts "would both increase the severity and frequency of future storms", he said.
