Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Environment Agency has issued two flood alerts for the River Pinn on two occasions in February 2014.  These were sent to responders in the area.  The London Resilience Team made the partnership aware of the flood alerts through its regular Common Recognised Information Picture, teleconferences and other reports during the course of the month.  These reports ensure that responders are aware of the risk and have the information to implement any necessary measures.
