Cumbria has been allocated £43million out of a £700million fund.

£33million of that will go on schemes in Kendal, Appleby, Flimby, Eamont Bridge, Wigton, Pooley Bridge, Rickerby Park and Braithwaite.

The other £10million will be spent on flood defences in Carlisle. Although that figure could rise to £25million depending on an Environment Agency review - making the potential Cumbria flood fun £58million.

Floods Minister Rory Stewart says some of the villages in the county will see spending of £30,000 per house with property owners in Carlisle and Kendal seeing a large portion of the funding.
