Budget 2014: £140 million pledged for flood defences

The Government announced in the Budget that an additional £140 million will be spent on flood defences.

This will be welcomed by flood risk communities across the UK. As insurers continue to help thousands of flood customers recover from the wettest winter on record, the need for sustained, targeted and highly ambitious building and maintenance of flood defences in now more important than ever. This additional resource will go some way to implementing vital plans and strategies to ensure the suffering and misery endured by so many will not happen again.
