Valley slopes

I realise this may not be exactly the right forum as the focus is mostly further upstream, but to be honest I feel so disgusted I have to vent my spleen and if anyone has any influence then that would be great...even though the damage is done. I appreciate that whips and willow saplings etc can cause bank damage, but what I witnessed today is surely devastation on a scale that there is no justification for.
I have been asked to describe how the flooding affected Savile Road. I live about half way up the hill so not at risk from the river but water pouring down the hills and through the woods here filled the yard behind a house a few doors from me and may well have entered the house if neighbours hadn't managed to divert the flow. I was away until the 27th but am told a river was running ankle deep down Savile Road on Boxing Day.
