Video: Flood management plan for SW Scotland

Councillors in Dumfries and Galloway have been meeting to consider a new flood action plan for the area.

It includes details for multi million pounds schemes for Dumfries, Newton Stewart, Stranraer and Langholm.

But there's not a scheme yet for the village of Carsphairn where around 30 out of 38 properties were flooded.

Some villagers there claim that they are being ignored.

Almost six months after the Cumbrian floods, Carlisle United's backroom staff are still working in portakabins as repair work continues on the ground.

Financial director Phil King says it will be a close run thing to get back to pre-flood normality before the start of the new season.

"Everybody here is looking forward to getting into some kind of a normal working environment in an office that has got windows and chairs and desks and a normal kind of place.

"That has been the toughest challenge to keep going, because it has been a long road."
