UK Flood Risks

Flood risk is now a fact of life in the UK. Reports of flooding are now on average twice as frequent as they were one hundred years ago in the UK, and experts from the Met Office and world leaders in climate change predict we could see a significant increase in flood risk in the coming years.

Flooding Facts in the UK

  • Property, land and assets to the value of £214 billion are at risk of flooding in England and Wales
  • The Environment Agency spends £300m a year on flood defences and reports that 43% of existing flood defences are in a fair, poor or very poor state of repair (source: Environment Agency)
  • The damage bill from the devastating floods of 2007 cost in excess of £3 billion (source: ABI)
