An estimated 24,000 properties in London are at significant risk of flooding, a new report suggests.
The recent flooding has caused an unprecedented number of sinkholes to appear in roads and near people's homes. Martin Stew investigates.
The 600-metre aqua-dam was pumped full of flood water on Friday to protect 200 homes.
Rose and Bob Kitts have been flooded three times in the last year. They now say the council needs to take responsibility. They claim flood defences have previously been put in place - but have failed.

The A22 Godstone Road is closed in both directions due to flooding between A23 Banstead Road (Purley Cross) and Station Road (Kenley). It's also affecting Foxley Hill Road between A22 Godstone Road and Higher Drive / Olden Lane.

Sinkholes are caused when the underlying rock is washed away - more exactly by the acid picked up by rain water as it passes through rotting vegetation.
That creates cavities underground which streams can flow through - the more water that flows the quicker the erosion.
