Insurers have a "critical role to play" in helping deal with the impact of the flood crisis, a minister has said.
Senior representatives of leading insurance firms, including Aviva, Direct Line Group and Axa, are due at Downing Street to discuss their response.
"We all need to pull together to help those areas badly affected by the floods, so they can get back on their feet as quickly as possible," Flooding minister Dan Rogerson said.
"Insurers have a critical role to play and by working closely together we will continue to ensure that the help and support which people need is available."
The Government has called for a "stepped-up national effort" to deal with the impact of the severe weather.
