Business and flooding news

Here is a brilliant piece of interactivity from graphics journalist Paddy Allen.

And, if you wondered what the political and economic effect of the floods was going to be, here are two You Tube videos of the Vodafone Headquarters near Newbury. They are clearly, going to be out of commission for a while.

As Paddy's graphic explains, the water is heading downstream from Wiltshire and the headwaters of the Thames towards major cities like Oxford and Reading.
The Guardian are also reporting that the nuclear weapons establishment at Burghfield in Berkshire is already affected by the flooding.
