Its quite hard to buy a house on flood plains nowadays anyway as no insurance companys cover them and the eastae and morgage companys know this.

Yeah theres a local beach resort to me (Weston Super Mare) and they built 3 housing estates on the Weston flood plains, nice cheap houses yes but would you buy a house on a flood plain at a beach resort

funnily enough the houses sold straight away , there hasnt been a flood yeat but all in good time

then they will turn around and say " the floods came as a supprise "

We sang the song in school where the wise man built his house upon the rocks, and when the waves came up his house stood still

But the daft guy built his on the sand

Sould not give them armbands if dogs can swim automatical toddlers should, just throw them in at the deep end they will soon learn.

If not its only a fool that would never have amounted to anything if he can stop himself from drowning, how can he be expected to count.
