"Work could include clearing culverts and removing debris". If this had been done when it should have been done as normal maintenance much of the flooding over the past weeks would not have happened.

+1 How the hell is that Emergency Maintenance? It rather confirms peoples suspicions that no regular maintenance is carried out at all.

Is this the £1 million that they promised to pay back to those caught in the Colchester bus lane fiasco but haven't yet done so? Mr Bass isn't doing very well at the moment, is he?
