The Environment Agency are inviting people to take part in drop-in sessions in order to help them decide which flood protection ideas should go ahead.

However, many residents, including Susan Sowerby whose home was flooded during Storm Desmond, say they don't want another consultation, but instead want to see flood defences being built.
