Storm Desmond and River Kelvin

Storm Desmond brought severe gales across the UK from 5th to 6th December 2015. Today, I went for a walk along the Kelvin Walkway to monitor the water levels and check for any flooding along the River Kelvin.

Ongoing work to protect the riverbank from further development and to maintain the bridges to prepare for heavy rainfall is needed. I will work closely with the Friends of the River Kelvin and council officials to address any concerns about flooding and damage to the riverbank, pathways and bridges along the Kelvin Walkway.
