David Cameron will cut short his attendance at an international conference tomorrow to focus on dealing with the flooding.
The Prime Minister had been due to speak at the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade, alongside the Prince of Wales and Duke of Cambridge.
But a Downing Street spokeswoman said: "The Prime Minister will briefly dip in to meet with international leaders attending the event but his attendance will be cut short."
The new Cabinet committee on flood recovery will meet tomorrow, replacing a scheduled meeting of the full Cabinet.
A Department for Communities and Local Government spokeswoman said "there is never an excuse for verbal abuse" after reports that Environment Agency staff were criticised by people in Wraysbury.
The Environment Agency (EA) has denied that it is pulling staff out of flood-hit Wraysbury after reports they suffered abuse from members of the community.
David Murphy, an EA flood risk manager, was asked by ITV News' Lewis Vaughan Jones whether the agency was removing staff from the area and he replied: "Not at all, we are here."
When asked about the rumours that staff had been abused by members of the community, Mr Murphy replied: "If that has happened, it was an isolated incident...if it happened."
He added: "We are working with the community and with the emergency services to provide advice and help."
The hostility from residents in flood-hit Wraysbury is a direct result of the irresponsible attack by Eric Pickles and others on the Environment Agency, the GMB union have claimed.
Justin Bowden, GMB National Officer for the Environment Agency (EA) said:
Ms Bowden said the Government must immediately reverse the "ludicrous cut" of 1,700 EA jobs and review funding to ensure the budget could cope with flooding and drought.
The Environment Agency has withdrawn staff from flood-hit Wraysbury in Berkshire after they suffered "abuse", the GMB union has said.
