Redcar and Cleveland Council's leader, Cllr George Dunning, has written to the local government Minister, Eric Pickles, making a special plea for help.
"I hope the Government will heed this call. A lot of people suffered from these floods.
"We will be responding to their requests to clean and make safe affected communities, but the council cannot do all this on its own.
"That is why we are approaching the government for Bellwin funding.”
