Storm Christoph effect on the environment

Workers at a park where the RSPB founder lived have called for better environmental management after floods.
Benches were knocked over by rushing water at Fletcher Moss Park, which includes flood basins for south Manchester, during Storm Christoph.

The park's group called on the Environment Agency to "open flood gates more slowly so the water doesn't come as a huge wave".
An Environment Agency spokesperson said it was "seeking to learn any lessons".
"We really value reports from community groups [...] because they help us understand the wider impacts of flooding and what can be done to protect communities better in the future".
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
