FLAG Press Release re: Prime Minister David Cameron 

FLAG welcome the announcement made by Prime Minister David Cameron that the rivers will be dredged once the current high water levels drop.

He said “I can confirm that dredging will start as soon as it is practical, as soon as the waters have started to come down,” Further to this he has announced that further high volume pumps will be sent to increase the volume of the pumping operation.

FLAG thinks this is excellent news and we would like to thank everyone who has backed our campaign as well as the local community for their massive support. We will continue to work with all agencies involved to ensure a better future for the Levels.
