Researchers have produced a detailed “future flood map” of Britain – simulating the impact of flooding as climate change takes its toll.

It has revealed that annual damage caused by flooding could increase by more than a fifth in today’s terms over the next century.

That could be reduced if pledges to reduce global carbon emissions are met.

Climate change is set to have a particular impact on “hotspots” where homes and businesses are in harm’s way.
