Climate change could put countless properties in the UK at risk from flooding if current climate trends continue, experts have warned. And if this manifests, millions of Brits could find that their properties may be worthless within the next 30 years alone.

The latest analysis warns of the ruinous impact rising sea levels could have on the UK if the world continues to burn fossil fuels at its unsustainable rate.

The effects of climate change could see vast parts of the country swamped due to extreme flooding caused by heavy rainfall and rising sea levels leading to new flood plains expanding existing ones.

This could permanently flood businesses and houses putting millions of livelihoods and homes at risk, according to location intelligence solutions firm Gamma.

Gamma’s research shows that in total, a staggering 3,066,318 properties will be in flood risk zones by 2050.

DON’T MISS: 

Many concerned Brits will be following the upcoming Cop26 UN climate change conference in Glasgow with interest.

The UK aims to hit net-zero by 2050 in a bit to stop global temperature increases rising beyond 1.5C, but many fear this won’t be enough to turn the tide on rising sea levels.

The decisions made by global leaders here will be pivotal for the fate of the UK and the world.
