Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Environment Agency issued a flood alert for the Lower River Colne and Frays River on 29 January 2014.  As at 5 March 2014 the alert is still in force.  The alert was 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.  These reports ensure that responders are aware of the risk and have the information to implement any necessary measures.
