Britain Disconnected

Extreme weather this winter has cut off large areas of Britain from the outside world. Does our Victorian infrastructure need an urgent update? With parts of Cumbria cut-off since early December, bridges down in Yorkshire, hundreds of ferry cancellations and the West Coast train line out of action until March it’s increasingly clear that Britain can’t cope with the strong winds and floods that are becoming the new norm.
