Geoff wants your flood snaps & clips

Dr Geoff Parkin is leading a Newcastle University study of exactly how the water reached different areas of Morpeth and how quickly the flood levels.

He wants to do this using pictures, videos and descriptions contributed by the public.
By the end of November, he wants to collect from the public:
photographs showing flood levels at different times through the day
and descriptions of how, where and when flooding happened.
Photographs (preferably digital) and comments can be contributed by any of the following means:
Hand in to:
  • Stait Photography, 51 Newgate Street, Morpeth (who will copy photos from camera, memory stick etc onto CD free of charge)
  • Castle Morpeth Council FirstCall, 28 Bridge Street, Morpeth
  • New Life Christian Centre, 24 Dacre Street, Morpeth
  • Or any residents' meetings

Or post to: Geoff Parkin at 39 Mitford Road, Morpeth, NE61 1RG

Geoff Parkin - who is, incidentally, a Green Party member - argued strongly against the previous Env Agency proposals for Morpeth Flood Protection, advocating a comprehensive flood alleviation system of the sort that the Env Agency is proposing now, more than five years (and two floods) later.
