Boris Announces Funding For Flood Hit Homes & Businesses



BORIS Johnson today announced that flood-hit homes and businesses will be eligible for Government grants of up to £5,000 for new resilience measures.

He told the Yorkshire Post “There is something uniquely traumatic about being forced from your home by floods.”

“You endure the shock of seeing your property engulfed by water.”

“Then you leave your life behind and you know that nothing will return to normal without a long and costly clean-up.”

“Across England 1,000 properties have been flooded, the vast majority of which – 70 per cent - are in Yorkshire.”

“When I visited Fishlake, waterlogged fields and flooded homes lay all around.”

“St Cuthbert’s church was filled with donated food, clothes and bottled water.”

“We must do everything possible to protect against future flooding and speed up the recovery time.”

"So I can announce today that flood-hit homes and businesses will be eligible for Government grants of up to £5,000 for new resilience measures."
