Deal and Walmer had received warnings that the area was at severe risk of flooding due to the stormy weather expected on Thursday night. I kept in regular contact with the emergency services who worked through the night to keep people safe. Many congratulations to the emergency services for all their hard work.
When I was first elected I had a real battle to secure funding for the new Deal flood defences. This morning I went up to the seafront at Deal and Walmer to see that investment had paid off as the new defences held and protected Deal successfully.
