Angry flood victim confronts PM over council 'inaction'

An angry flood victim confronted the Prime Minister as he visited a village seriously affected by the latest storms.

In a heated on-camera exchange with the Prime Minister, the woman said she had been left stranded in her home with no electricity. He offered to "get on to the council" about the plight and see the damage at her house for himself.
