Cameron views tidal surge damage in Norfolk

David Cameron surveyed the extent of the flood damage in north Norfolk today as he visited a town hit by last week's tidal surge.

The Prime Minister met residents of Wells-next-the-Sea whose properties were damaged as the tide reached the highest level on record.

David Cameron met Norfolk rescue services involved in the flood response.

Mr Cameron paid tribute to the emergency services and flood wardens for their response, but said more could be done.

He said: "These were terrible floods and it was a very difficult event but the resilience of people here in Norfolk must be praised."
