Flood Money for Cornwall

Cornwall's told to 'Get Flood Ready.'
It is the new campaign to help make the Duchy better prepared after last winter's storms.
There are only ten days left for home owners and businesses hit by flooding to apply for repair grants.
You can watch an advice video below.
Martyn Eddy from the Cornwall Community Flood Forum told Pirate FM: "The grant is open to businesses and households that were affected by flooding over the winter. Water must have come over the threshold of the premises and affected either the business or the habitable areas of the house.
"Funding can pay for barriers, barriers across doorways or entrances to premises. It can put in one way valves in drains. Any of those measures which increase the resilience to the household to flooding would be eligible under the scheme.
Community Flood Resilience Manager, Martyn Alvey, added: "Last year's weather related floods were devastating for so many homes and businesses.
"The Cornwall Flood Fund is a pot of money available to Cornwall but time is running out to claim, with the deadline of Monday November 30 looming.
"We hope that by putting the message out through social media and Youtube we can assist more people throughout the county to become more flood resilient for the future."
The Cornwall Flood Fund is only available to properties in Cornwall that suffered internal flooding between December 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014 and must be used to improve flood defences.
