Labour leader Ed Miliband has said that both the planning and the response to the floods was inadequate, saying: "the Government has been slack in planning and slow to help those affected"
Mr Miliband also called on David Cameron to "do what he promised what he would do at the end of last month and tell the country whether the right investment in flood protection is in place."
