The Environment Agency is inviting people living in areas affected by the recent floods to come to one of the drop in sessions we will be holding across Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
 
Our staff will be on hand to answer questions, covering the flooding, the clean-up operation and future plans to manage flood risk in their area. We will be inviting other agencies to take part so that, together, we can provide as much information as possible to local residents.
 
Flood Risk Manager, Anthony Perry, says: "In the last few weeks we have seen the heaviest and most intense rainfall for many years. The widespread flooding that resulted has caused major disruption and misery to many people.
 
"We have been working around the clock with emergency services and other agencies to defend communities and vital facilities against the flooding. We are also helping to get people lives back to normal as quickly as possible.
 
"As the water levels recede we remain active in the clean up operation. We are also stepping up our efforts to talk to local communities and answer their questions about the flooding in their area."
 
All drop in sessions will be open between 12 noon and 8pm and people are welcome to call in at any time between those hours.
