Mining the truth


No doubt the weather is rather unusual these days, but it is no coincidence that most of the flooding occurred in mined coalfield areas.

Mining may have long since ceased but the mining subsidence legacy remains. Mining reports tend to address differential settlement leading to structural damage but rarely address the likely increased incidence of flooding.
