The Witham MP, Priti Patel, has called on the Environment Agency to take urgent action to address flooding in the Witham constituency. A number of locations, including Langford, Kelvedon and Great Braxted, have been affected by heavy rainfall and rising river levels. Priti has also called on communities concerned by rain and local water levels to regularly check the Government’s dedicated flood information website and to report any incidents of flooding to her too.

Priti said: “Flooding can devastate lives and damage property. Many parts of the Witham constituency have had horrendous experiences caused by floods in previous years. I am calling on the Environment Agency to make sure they are taking all the steps necessary to protect lives and defend properties, especially at this time of the year.”
