Too little is done to manage some of Herefordshire's rivers

Having lived in Kingsland for over 20 years and seen the devastating effects of flooding on properties situated near the river Lugg and having recently walked the footpath along the river which has been the subject of huge debate, and was flowing rapidly with no signs of flooding, I feel compelled to pass on my thinking via your columns.

Throughout the county and beyond their have been reports of the horrendous effects of flooding.

In many cases the water is unable to run freely and get away, because very little is done to manage some areas of the rivers.

There are blockages of different descriptions, which have remained in situ for meaningful periods of time.
