Susanna Pressel, local City and County Councillor (and OFA Flood Star) convened and chaired a very useful flood meeting in West Oxford Community Primary School. Susanna had mustered a panel of representatives from the EA, Thames Water, the Fire & Rescue Service, Thames Valley Police and local councils. Nick Hills of OFA attended as a local resident, but was called to the front to field questions as appropriate. Members of the panel were invited to outline their respective roles and responsibilities, which they did in turn, several of them acknowledging the contribution and initiatives made by OFA. They then responded to questions from the floor. Barry Russell of the EA handled some long and complex questions with his customary aplomb.
