CIWEM welcomes the report of the Public Accounts Committee, which identifies significant underinvestment in flood risk management infrastructure.

Veteran lambasts illegal ads next to Kingston war memorial

An army veteran has criticised a paving firm for erecting illegal posters next to a Second World War memorial – just days after the anniversary of the bomb attack it commemorates. Fly posters advertising Multi Pave caused offence when they appeared on trees on a North Kingston road, next to a memorial to victims of a German rocket attack in 1945. The bombing, in Park Road, was the most severe on the royal borough. It killed eight people, injured 117 and destroyed 32 homes. The poster, which advertises landscaping and gardening work, first appeared last Thursday morning, four days after…
