Extreme weather becoming more frequent

Q Droughts, floods and storms are becoming increasingly frequent in global weather, a report has warned.

The new report from the European Academies Science Advisory Council declared there is an urgent need for action from governments and at EU level.

The report on extreme weather events highlights a rise of 60pc in the cost of damage caused by extreme weather across Europe in the past three decades.

The report said it was vital that Europe's policymakers devise common strategies to help mitigate the physical, human and economic costs.
