Agency awash with flood knowledge

Worcester Editorial 14th Oct, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

PUPILS were flooded with knowledge about the dangers of high river levels when a popular Environmental Agency worker swept in to give a talk at their school.

David Throup, who gained his own fan club following his efforts to keep people informed during the storms in February, visited Red Hill CE Primary School on Thursday, October 2.

The school invited him to speak to Year Five pupils as part of their physical geography project this half term. As well as talking about recent flooding event, children also learnt about the worst flood ever to hit Worcester which was in 1947 when the water level in the middle of the river reached just under 12 feet.

Teacher Charlotte Foy said: “The talk was highly informative and David brought along photographs of severe flooding in Worcester and the surrounding area to show the children the results of flooding.”
