Loughton Flooding

18th August 2020

Epping Forest MP Dame Eleanor Laing has contacted both Essex County Council and Epping Forest District Council following the flooding which hit Loughton yesterday (Monday).

She has also sent a message of sympathy to everyone affected by the "almost unimaginable" weather conditions.

Dame Eleanor said: "My heart goes out to everyone whose homes and businesses have been damaged by the exceptional heavy rain and flooding. 

"It is almost unimaginable that something like this should happen on top of all the difficulties that so many people have been coping with as a result of the lockdown." 

She added: "I would like to thank everyone at Essex County Council and Epping Forest District Council who are once again working so hard to help our local residents. 

"I have asked both councils to investigate whether anything can be done to make sure this doesn't happen again."
