Cheltenham council installed a supposed anti flood system last year at a cost of £24 million, they may as well have supplied the town with chocolate firegaurds for the winter, muppets!
Going by what it's been like here I'm incredibly glad I don't live further up country, or have to work in it because I can't imagine anything more horrendous. So for those that have been working in it, hope your not too soaked! I'm also extremely glad I wasn't at Glastonbury, I feel sorry for the poor sods that were, imagine getting stuck in that weather, trains couldn't get there, coaches refused to travel & 40,000 cars got stuck in the mud, what fun! Not.
