The research estimates that 200,000 homes and workplaces in London, alongside 25% of rail stations and 10% of the rail network, are at high risk of flooding if extreme temperatures continue to get worse. The six boroughs at highest risk are Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Islington, Brent, Tower Hamlets and Newham.
