UK heritage faces its greatest threat

A new report by the National Trust warns that flooding, wildfires, and extreme weather pose a serious threat to nearly three-quarters of its managed sites, including historic homes, land, and coastline. The charity identifies climate change as the "single biggest threat" to its 28,500 properties.

The report calls on the UK government to take more action to help organisations adapt to climate change. The National Trust advocates climate-responsive local planning frameworks and greater collaboration between public bodies, and promotes "more and better green and blue infrastructure in towns and cities to grow resilience in urban areas."
