The figures we have obtained from the Environment Agency show far too many homes in London remain at high flood risk.

The Prime Minister has said that money is no object, so it's time for the Mayor to cash in that promise and secure the funding necessary to protect those London homes.

Current flood defence proposals will only protect a fraction of the homes at high risk.
