Flood Repair Cash

Cornwall could get more flood defences as £3.5 million is poured into repairs.
The council is using the emergency cash to fix roads and coastpaths hit by the downpours, as well as putting in extra protection.
John Lloyd from 'Which?' is pleased that potholes are being fixed:
"This is a real menace for road users. It can wreck your tyres and for motorcyclists and cyclists it can be really dangerous. This isn't small stuff for people. It's very dangerous for some users and councils have got to sort this out.
"With this terrible weather, with this snow, with the freezing of wet conditions and the damage that does to the road surface this does look like a problem that is set to grow unless the council can get on top of it and make those repairs that are needed."
Cornish flood victims said the cash boost for new defences should have come sooner.
Mevagissey Newsagents owner Keith Watson had water bubbling up through the floor before Christmas.
Keith, who's been left unable to get flood insurance, said: "Something should have been done after the major flood of November two years ago. We had promises from David Cameron at the time, and various people in the government but nothing really ever happened. This time something needs to be done.
"Apart from myself, other houses are being flooded all the time. Before something serious happens, a major incident happens, the government via the Environment Agency, do need to address the problem."
