London's flood peril — is the public well warned?
Anyone who works, lives or simply travels in the flood-risk area should have received explanatory literature, be aware of the flood threat and have prepared themselves for the possible event of a flood warning. This paper reviews the literature that has been produced to educate the public and discusses whether it has been successful. This review is based on a report presented to the GLC in 1978. Since then some of the recommendations made in the report have been acted upon. Though this has resulted in the improvement of individual pieces of borough literature the overall standard is as yet far from what was recommended.
