Cumbria County Council says David Cameron's £3million funding package is nowhere near enough to get Cumbria back on its feet.
With an estimated £500m of damage to our infrastructure, including £20m in the Lake District National Park alone, today’s funding announcement is totally inadequate.
“The government describes Cumbria and the Lake District National Park as a jewel in the crown of the British countryside, and it is.
That is why we are urgently seeking a face to face meeting with Ministers to secure the amount of money that we need to fund Cumbria’s full recovery. It is now 8 weeks since the floods hit Cumbria and this has to be, and should be government’s, top priority.”

Prime Minister, David Cameron, has spoken about the recent floods in Cumbria. He will chair a Cobra meeting tomorrow morning, where an emergency response committee will be addressed about the flooding.
The thoughts of the whole country will be with the people in Cumbria and the North West who have suffered so terribly from the devastating storms this weekend.
The Government is doing everything it can to help those who have seen their homes flooded - and to try and prevent further damage.
I would like to pay a huge tribute to all those emergency workers and troops who have worked tirelessly to respond to this weekend's events. There has been a tremendous response from local communities too, with people taking in families affected by the flooding."
One year ago today, Scotland voted to remain in the UK.
But on the anniversary of the independence referendum, the prospect of a second vote remains.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said the Scottish National Party will set out the timescale for a possible second referendum in its manifesto for next year's Holyrood election.
But Prime Minister David Cameron has ruled out a second referendum in this Parliament.
