Flood victims do it for themselves – in true Christmas spirit

Residents in Millom are raising festive spirits as the town continues to recover from flooding.

They've taken to the streets to make a Christmas video, involving many affected homeowners, to spread festive joy in a bid to raise money.

Heavy rainfall hit 320 properties in September - affecting over 1000 people -and campaigners say 30 families are still unable to return to their homes.

The government reportedly denied attempts to access flood resilience grants as ‘not enough houses were affected’.
