Calls for help for Dumfries and Galloway flood victims

There have been calls in Dumfries and Galloway for flood victims to receive compensation in same way the Westminster Government has pledged cash for Somerset farmers and residents.

In 2013 Carol suffered flooding at her shop "Grannys Kitchen" in Newton Stewart.

Carol feels that more money is needed to help local residents and shop keepers in the area to help prevent flooding.

"We've been flooded twice in the last 13 months, it's had a big impact on our business. We need help. We do appreciate that down in England they have severe flooding but then this is our livelihood, it's happened twice as I say, every time it happens the insurance goes up, this is our livelihood, it's heartbreaking, it's heartbreaking."

– Carol Wither, owner Granny's Kitchen, Newton Stewart
