Why is London flooding so much?

Another downpour, another day of chaos on London. An estimated 25mm of rain fell in the city, causing disruption to commuters, the closure of a tube station, even the flooding of Tower Bridge. 

We speak to hyrdrologist Dragan Savic and ask why the Capital appears to have developed an increasing problem with flooding? We ask what threats there might be to the city if more isn’t done to deal with the issue, and whether there are any ways to protect crucial services like the tube and underground stations?
