I had a meeting with the Met Office team at their new headquarters in Exeter to hear about the important work that they do do, both nationally and internationally. The Met Office employs 1,200 people in South Devon, many living within the Totnes constituency. Several issues were discussed, like the survival of the Slapton Line and flooding, a real risk to our community. It was also good to talk to Dr. Vicky Pope, the Head of Climate Change Advice to hear her views on the science behind climate change predictions.
Anyone interested in looking in greater detail at some of these important issues can follow the links below to the Met Office site.
