Emergency fund set up in Great Yarmouth for those affected by the tidal surge

An emergency recovery fund is being set up in Great Yarmouth, to help those most affected by last week's tidal surge.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council said it will use some of its reserves, to help people who have lost their homes.

A leaflet explaining how people can apply for help is being delivered to residents. They are also applying to the Environment Agency for a grant to help with clear-up costs.
