I went to see the Thames Barrier because it is a great feat of engineering. (This was last week).
They have various days when you can see the Barrier in progress.
We were told that the waters round the world were rising, that the Government is desperately erecting more flood barriers and because of the ice caps melting, Britain is in fact ‘sinking’.
I asked about earthquakes but they said it was more designed for tidal flooding than earthquakes ‘because we don’t get big ones over here’.
They said that it has high security because it is is a high terrorist target.
