Legal Challenges to Flood Management

After attending a Castle Debate on Flooding; I have put together a video on some of the legal challenges to flooding. I begin with mentioning a few lines on the lack of clarity and overarching statutory regimes surrounding Flood Management. I then move onto exploring the three basic claim areas that are likely to grow in the future:

1. Flooding caused/exacerbated by neighbours – Nuisance/Rylands v Fletcher
2. Climate change litigation
3. Challenges to public authority flood management
