The Gallery | The winter storm recovery effort

Acting Environment Agency chairman Emma Howard Boyd today set out what the body is doing to lead the recovery from damage caused by a series of storms this winter.

Howard Boyd, who replaced Sir Philip Dilley after his resignation last month, chaired an open board meeting today.

She said: “Our teams have worked tirelessly to repair flood defences and help communities in particular across Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire get back on their feet after the terrible flooding we saw over December and January.

“Last week I visited Croston in Lancashire and saw the fantastic work that had been done to repair the flood bank and restore protection to residents in the village.”
