NCE Live News Updates Monday 10 February: Major battle against floods in Berkshire


Why has it taken Eric Pickle's comments about the EA to sting Lord Smith into a response which provides more information about the funding rules available to the EA? Is this just more politics ignoring the root cause which is a lack of planning for extreme events.
