“We need to look much more seriously at our flood defences and also the design of our cities,” says Jean Lambert, Green MEP for London as she is interviewed for Europarl TV ‘Climate Change: Battered by the Sea’.

The report covers the Thames Flood Barrier in London, coastal erosion in East Anglia and also the challenge to the UK’s national rail network, currently investing £300m to protect key routes from the effects of climate change.
