A North West MP says councils are still millions of pounds out of pocket following the devastating Boxing Day floods.
Tory David Nuttall said Bury Council in Greater Manchester is facing a £2.6 million shortfall in repairing the damage caused to local infrastructure.
Northern England was hit by the worst of the floods over Christmas 2015, wrecking thousands of homes and businesses as well as roads and bridges.
The total cost of the storm damage last winter was around £5 billion
Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom said: "I completely sympathise with all of those who were flooded, an absolutely appalling thing to happen.
"I will of course look into the point that you raise about people who are still suffering from the damage done by last winter's floods
Shadow minister for flooding Sue Hayman said Allerdale Borough Council in Cumbria is still owed #220,000 by central Government.
