Judging from the scale of the flooding in Calderdale, the lack of prior warning to local residents and businesses, and the way in which the flood crisis was handled on the ground as it unfolded at the time and subsequently, it would appear that the Environment Agency is not fit for purpose and is literally out of its depth. It doesn't appear to have the technical or organisational skills to analyse and tackle the key issues or the will or commitment to implement the necessary solutions.

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.

We have always been aware of the Calder and were not complacent. We have never been flooded before. 3 years ago the river came onto the back garden but was well short of our bungalow. On Boxing Day 2015 we had an Environment Agency warning at 4:30 am. We went to the bottom of the back garden to assess the situation. The Calder flows about 8 or 9 feet below the edge of our rear garden. At this time it was about 3 feet below the rim.
