The EA hopes to spend £300million, granted by the government, on creating three river diversion channels which, it says, will protect about 12,000 homes in Spelthorne, Runnymede and Elmbridge.
Fire, Police and the Ambulance service were on hand with the car ablaze
POLICE believe a vehicle like this was driven by a man who tried to abduct a 14-year-old girl in Shepperton.
Nearly two months after the attempted abduction, which happened in Laleham Road on April 9 between 2.45pm-2.55pm, detectives have still to make a breakthrough in their search for the suspect.
They hope this image, based on the teenager's description will generate fresh leads.
A man has attempted to drag a 14-year-old girl into a car as she was walking in Laleham Road, Shepperton.
The driver – described as a black or Asian man – pulled alongside her in a white transit van shortly before 3pm on April 9, and pretended to ask directions.
Moments later he leaned out of the window and grabbed her hand, then attempted to drag her into the vehicle. There was a struggle and the girl managed to break free and run away.
The man, whose age is unknown, was given a fixed penalty notice for wasting police time after admitting he had wounded himself. He initially told police he had been stabbed in the stomach. It is believed the man, who has not been named, injured himself with a screwdriver.
The fire then spread to industrial buildings, some containing acetylene cylinders. That led to an exclusion zone being put in place at the site. Surrey Fire and Rescue said Heathrow Airport had to be advised as smoke was drifting in that direction. But a spokesman for the airport said it had not affected any arrivals or departures.
He added that the airport had sent one of its own fire engines to help deal with the blaze. On Sunday morning, the fire was still being tackled, with people living nearby being told to keep their windows closed. Fire crews were expected to remain at the site all day. No-one was injured in the fire, the cause of which is unknown.

Hi, I'm looking for family that moved to shepperton many years ago.
Its my husbands family and we just wondered if they were still there and if there's a chance of contacting them. My husbands uncles name is Douglas Elms and his wife's name was Nan and they had two sons Brett and Philip.
Is there any chance that you could help me in tracking them down.
Many thanks Debbie and Douglas Price
David Smith, boss of Thames Car Boot Sales, is planning to attract almost 1,000 people to the fields off Chertsey Road for a monthly car boot sale, plus 28 days of clay pigeon shooting a year. Villagers say the 89-acre site site is unsuitable for both the car boot sales and shooting because it’s liable to flooding, is a quagmire in the winter and will bring litter and noise.
A council spokesman said although members were set to consult on proposals to introduce charges in Orchard Meadow, Green Street and the Walled Garden, Sunbury, along with the Broadway, Laleham, and Shepperton Village Hall, the decision will not come back before councillors and will instead be decided by unelected officials.
A council report said drivers will not pay for the first hour of parking, so as not to discourage people from using shops and restaurants, but a small charge would be introduced after.
Speaking at Tuesday night’s meeting, Councillor Colin Davis, portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “Car parks cost this council a fortune. The council has to pay business rates to itself in effect, but then to the Government.
Spelthorne detectives have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the burglary.Officers spotted the man on a petrol station CCTV camera at the Esso garage, Walton Bridge Road, Shepperton around the time of the burglary.
