Flood grant applicants in the south Lakes are being reminded they only have a few weeks left before the September 30th deadline.

South Lakeland District Council says around 200 approved applications are still outstanding despite the deadline.

All paperwork must be completed to claim the Flood Resilience Grant of £5,000.

A spokesperson for SLDC said:

The grant was open to those who were affected by Storm Desmond in 2015.
