People in Flimby are demanding action to defend their community from flooding.
More a hundred properties in the West Cumbrian village were flooded last December.
At a public meeting yesterday evening the Environment Agency reassured them that money is available for a new flood protection scheme but residents want to see a plan developed quickly.
The Flood Forum meeting, organised by the Environment Agency and Cumbria County Council, was held in the village's Methodist Church Hall and attracted around 70 people.
A report discussed at the meeting says actions including reviewing drainage and sewage and introducing natural flood management could help prevent further flooding.
