100 days on from Boxing Day floods

100 days on from the Boxing Day floods many people affected are still struggling to rebuild their lives.

More than 2,000 homes and businesses were flooded in the deluge in December 2015.

Flood defences are being restored but there is no promise that they will hold in the future.
