GUEST,Anne Croucher Spare a thought for Boscastle, Cornwall (67* d) RE: Spare a thought for Boscastle, Cornwall 17 Aug 04


The TV news today was full of pictures of the actual flood and the aftermath.

It is astonishing that there are so few people unacounted for - some might turn up, but no serious injuries and no known deaths at the moment.

The number of people rescued by helecopters from precarious places was impressive - well, I thought so.

OK there is a lot of damage to property cars caravans and campers swept away - houses collapsed or undermined - but the actual Human cost is a few sprains and bruises so far. The whole valley must have been full of guardian angels, stacked like Christmas 747s over Gatwick in a hail storm.
