PEOPLE from all walks of life are needed for an influential panel that will help guide flood risk management across Hampshire and West Sussex.

The Environment Agency wants to fill vacancies on the Southern Regional Flood and Coastal Committee.

Anyone with an interest in flood risk management would be ideal, as well as people experienced in engineering and construction, local government finance, asset management, freshwater fishing and any flood forum groups.

Mike Bateman, committee chairman, said: ‘It has never been so crucial as it is now to reduce the risk of flooding to the thousands of people who live in the south east.’
