Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Much of coastal north east England, down to London, and the northwest from Liverpool well inland will be submerged if the Greenland ice cap melts.  In time it will get worse if the West Antarctic Ice Sheet melts. These are not considered likely now, but it depends on the extent of GHGs added to the atmosphere and whether the effects remain linear.
