Letter: Flood defence worry

I hope that the sea defences have proven their effectiveness after the need for them in early December.

With my home being very close to the sea, I am personally extremely grateful for all the hard work the Environment Agency have put into making a great many of our properties safer.

It is therefore of great concern to hear that funding for maintaining and improving the sea defences is due to end in 2015. Should no funds be made available, we will all be very vulnerable.

I would therefore urge anyone likely to be effected to contact their MPs with some urgency.
