The Environment Agency says it's made a temporary repair to flood defences at Shoreham Airport, which are holding. The airport is expected to re-open today. But many businesses have been affected and it will take some time for the area to get back to normal.
The Airport management have been working closely with the Adur and Worthing and Brighton and Hove Councils and other major stakeholders in Shoreham including Shoreham Port, Ricardo’s and Northbrook College to secure the funding for new Tidal Walls for the River Adur through the Brighton City Deals initiative."
