North. The headlines tonight: Seven weeks and counting - the

:00:08.:00:10.

government's running out of time to arrange affordable insurance for

:00:10.:00:18.

people threatened by flooding. The government seem to be dragging

:00:18.:00:22.

their feet and reducing the amount of money available. They should get

:00:22.:00:25.

on with it. Up to speed - villages in rural

:00:25.:00:28.

Lincolnshire get access to broadband levels normally only seen in city

:00:28.:00:30.

centres. A mother calls for wider testing for

:00:30.:00:35.

heart conditions in young people after the death of her daughter.

:00:35.:00:40.

There were no warning signs, no nothing. It did not just rip a hole

:00:40.:00:43.

in our family, it ripped a hole in the community.

:00:43.:00:47.

Out of the frying pan, into the fire - the chef heading south for two

:00:47.:00:53.

weeks with Gordon Ramsay. And I will be back later with the full weekend

:00:53.:01:01.

forecast. There's a warning tonight that the

:01:02.:01:04.

Government is running out of time to secure affordable flood insurance

:01:04.:01:09.

for homes that are at risk. At the moment, the insurance companies have

:01:09.:01:12.

a deal with the Government to ensure that anyone affected is offered

:01:12.:01:17.

cover which is reasonably priced. But that deal runs out in seven

:01:18.:01:22.

weeks, and there's still no sign that it'll be renewed. In Hull and

:01:22.:01:27.

East Yorkshire, more than 180,000 properties are at risk of flooding.

:01:27.:01:31.

In Lincolnshire, it's just over 100,000. And the MP for Hull North,

:01:31.:01:34.

Diana Johnson, says David Cameron needs to act. Caroline Bilton is in

:01:34.:01:43.

Hull this evening. What have flood victims been telling you? People

:01:43.:01:48.

feel let down by government. These talks have been going on for three

:01:48.:01:54.

years, with still no agreement. I am in West Hull tonight. I can show you

:01:54.:01:59.

images of what happened here in 2007, when people were walking need

:01:59.:02:04.

deep in water. That was six years ago, but people are still feeling

:02:04.:02:13.

the effects of those floods today. We both climbed over here.

:02:13.:02:16.

Kathleen and Barry, it seems like yesterday. The day their home

:02:16.:02:20.

flooded is one they will never forget. If something bad happens to

:02:21.:02:24.

you, the place you go is home and you shut the doors and you are

:02:24.:02:29.

inside. You had nowhere to go, that was the feeling, that your place of

:02:29.:02:34.

safety had gone. In 2007, we were told it was a once-in-a-lifetime

:02:34.:02:37.

event, but tell that to those living in cool and Burton Fleming, whose

:02:37.:02:43.

homes have since been flooded. Now there is an added worry. As of next

:02:43.:02:47.

month, thousands of homes may not be able to get insurance. A government

:02:47.:02:51.

deal with the industry to guarantee cover the Flood customers runs out.

:02:51.:02:55.

I was told a year ago by the then Secretary of State that a deal was

:02:55.:02:59.

imminent, and it would mean premiums would be at a reasonable level and

:02:59.:03:04.

excesses would not be too high. We are still waiting, with a matter of

:03:04.:03:08.

weeks to go. We don't know what will happen after July. Insurance

:03:08.:03:17.

companies could decide not to ensure areas of the country which have

:03:17.:03:20.

flooded in the last few years, which would cause mayhem. It is a big

:03:20.:03:23.

worry, and the government seem to be dragging their feet and reducing the

:03:23.:03:26.

amount of money available, instead of getting on with it. In 2007, this

:03:26.:03:32.

area was knee deep in water. today it is regarded as a low risk

:03:32.:03:35.

area to flooding because of the considerable amount of money that

:03:35.:03:40.

has been spent on new flood defences. You would think that would

:03:40.:03:43.

mean that people here would find it easier to get home insurance, but

:03:43.:03:50.

they tell me that is not the case. Ron Smith's home overlooks the new

:03:50.:03:54.

defences. He knows his property is better protected, but that message

:03:54.:03:58.

is not getting through to the insurance companies. If you are

:03:58.:04:02.

going to sell a house, the new people coming in may have trouble

:04:02.:04:07.

getting that insurance, even though you have a letter from the

:04:07.:04:14.

environment agency that says you are very low risk. This will affect

:04:14.:04:18.

something like 7% of the properties in this country. In a statement,

:04:18.:04:28.
:04:28.:04:44.

clock is ticking. They don't want to talk, they want action, so they can

:04:44.:04:46.

have one less thing to worry about, come July.

:04:46.:04:49.

This issue is so important that a special conference was held today in

:04:49.:04:57.

York, to discuss it. We seem to have come to a stalemate, with no side

:04:57.:05:04.

saying... Sorry, we just lost the link to Caroline.

:05:04.:05:07.

Earlier, I spoke to Malcolm Tarling from the Association of British

:05:07.:05:15.

Insurers. I asked him whether a deal would be done in time. The insurance

:05:15.:05:19.

industry is 100% committed to doing all it can to resolve the

:05:19.:05:24.

situation. We want Flood insurance to remain available and affordably

:05:24.:05:28.

priced to homeowners and businesses in Yorkshire. We are doing all we

:05:28.:05:32.

can in our discussions with government. Why should the

:05:32.:05:37.

government help you on this? You are a commercial organisation. People

:05:37.:05:42.

will not understand that. We are not asking the government to bail us

:05:42.:05:45.

out. But in no other country in the world is Flood insurance widely

:05:45.:05:48.

available to people at high risk without some form of government

:05:48.:05:55.

support. If you leave the situation without any sort of partnership with

:05:55.:06:00.

government, you could get to a point where large numbers of people will

:06:00.:06:03.

be unable to afford flood insurance because over the years, the risk of

:06:03.:06:08.

flooding in this country has sadly increased so significantly that the

:06:08.:06:13.

costs have to reflect the risk. So if we can develop a partnership with

:06:13.:06:16.

the government, as we have done successfully over the last 13 years,

:06:16.:06:21.

that can end sure that we better manage the flood risk in this

:06:21.:06:24.

country and keep premiums affordable. And if they say they

:06:24.:06:28.

will not give you money, what happens to me, who lives by the side

:06:28.:06:34.

of water? We are not asking for money. We have developed a scheme

:06:34.:06:38.

that will safeguard the future affordability and availability of

:06:38.:06:42.

Flood insurance, which would include adding a small levy on all policies

:06:42.:06:46.

so that Flood insurance can remain available. We are saying to the

:06:46.:06:49.

government that if there is a large flood in the early years of that

:06:49.:06:54.

scheme, the government may need to provide a temporary overdraft that

:06:54.:06:58.

will be paid back. For somebody who does not live in a flood risk area,

:06:58.:07:04.

why should they pay money that goes towards you? These days, everyone is

:07:04.:07:07.

at risk of flooding. If you go back to 2007, large parts of Yorkshire

:07:07.:07:14.

were devastated. Many of those floods were as a result of surface

:07:14.:07:18.

water drainage. You don't have to live near a river these days to be

:07:18.:07:23.

at risk of flooding. It can strike at any time, anywhere in this

:07:23.:07:26.

country. That is the risk we have to guard against and that is why we are

:07:26.:07:30.

in these discussions with the government.

:07:30.:07:34.

And we'd like to hear from you on this one. Should there be insurance

:07:34.:07:38.

help for people living in flood risk areas? And have you found it

:07:38.:07:48.
:07:48.:08:06.

In a moment...high art - Hull gets �3 million to develop its creative

:08:06.:08:13.

talent. 32 villages in rural Lincolnshire

:08:13.:08:16.

are getting access to broadband speeds similar to those seen in city

:08:16.:08:22.

centres. The county has some of the slowest broadband speeds in the

:08:22.:08:27.

country. Now, instead of waiting up to two years for cables to be laid

:08:27.:08:30.

to some villages, West Linsey district council is using devices on

:08:30.:08:40.
:08:40.:08:41.

the roofs of village halls. Turning a not-spot into a hot spot.

:08:41.:08:44.

This little device will enable residents of Glentham to join the

:08:44.:08:54.
:08:54.:08:54.

21st century. We have got the news and the sport. People like Margaret,

:08:54.:09:02.

whose connection at home is painfully slow. I do my own family

:09:02.:09:08.

history. It will be a lot easier to fetch the laptop down here and logon

:09:08.:09:15.

and get instant access to things. The speed of this, to me, is

:09:15.:09:22.

brilliant. I would be sitting there with my thumbs like this. It seems

:09:22.:09:26.

ridiculous. Man has walked on the moon and installed machinery on

:09:26.:09:28.

Mars, but still, half of Lincolnshire's residents can't

:09:28.:09:31.

quickly download a movie on their laptop, or talk to family across the

:09:31.:09:34.

world on Skype, because their internet connection is simply too

:09:34.:09:37.

slow. In 2010, campaigners used a carrier pigeon to transport a memory

:09:37.:09:44.

card from Beverley to a village near Skegness. It was quicker than

:09:44.:09:47.

uploading a video to the internet. Earlier this year, Lincolnshire

:09:47.:09:50.

County Council announced they will work with BT to bring superfast

:09:50.:09:56.

broadband to most homes in the country. But many will have to wait

:09:56.:10:06.
:10:06.:10:07.

until 2015. In the meantime, this achieves a superfast broadband

:10:07.:10:10.

signal in order to stimulant business, create jobs and make

:10:10.:10:13.

everyone's life a lot easier. easier in so many ways, according to

:10:13.:10:15.

Fiona White. She says poor connections can seriously

:10:15.:10:24.

disadvantage those in remote locations. This is one of the top

:10:24.:10:29.

three worst areas for living in the fuel poverty. A third of all

:10:29.:10:32.

households have fuel poverty, and they can't get access to the best

:10:32.:10:35.

deals online because they can't get online. It's a small local company

:10:35.:10:38.

who are installing 32 of these devices without the need to dig up

:10:38.:10:41.

loads or lay expensive cables. And despite the fact you've got to walk

:10:41.:10:46.

to the village hall to connect, it's making these residents very happy.

:10:46.:10:49.

You can see what the weather is going to be like.

:10:49.:10:52.

Linsey Smith joins me in the studio now. Linsey, great news for the

:10:52.:10:54.

villagers, but has this come at a huge cost?

:10:54.:11:01.

Surprisingly not. It has cost around �500 each to install these devices,

:11:01.:11:07.

compared to the cost of the BT Project, �48 million. That will

:11:07.:11:10.

involve miles of roads being dug up and disruption to traffic. But

:11:10.:11:15.

still, people in our most isolated villages will not benefit from that

:11:15.:11:19.

as they live too far out for the cables to go. So in those places,

:11:19.:11:24.

these wireless devices will stay as permanent features. Campaigners say

:11:24.:11:26.

internet access is more crucial than ever because of changes to the

:11:27.:11:29.

Government's benefit system. You now have to claim online, and there were

:11:30.:11:32.

fears that those with poor internet connections may struggle. Hopefully,

:11:32.:11:35.

these new devices will minimise those problems in Lincolnshire.

:11:35.:11:39.

The MP for Boston and Skegness, Mark Simmonds, says he's ready to take on

:11:39.:11:42.

Nigel Farage if the UKIP leader decides to stand in the constituency

:11:42.:11:49.

at the next general election. UKIP picked up 16 seats in Lincolnshire

:11:49.:11:51.

during this month's council elections and meet tonight to choose

:11:51.:11:54.

their group leader, but the local MP isn't worried about a challenge from

:11:54.:12:04.
:12:04.:12:05.

the party. I would be delighted if Nigel chose to fight Boston and

:12:05.:12:09.

Skegness, because it would give a real opportunity for some of the

:12:09.:12:13.

challenges we face to be put into the national domain. But I would be

:12:13.:12:17.

very surprised. As a national leader of a national party at a general

:12:17.:12:20.

election, he has to be able to access the media centres at the drop

:12:20.:12:26.

of a hat as events unfold. He can't do that if he is canvassing here, as

:12:26.:12:29.

I will be doing. The Health and Safety Executive says

:12:30.:12:32.

it's still considering whether any charges will be brought against RAF

:12:32.:12:36.

bosses over the death of a Red Arrows pilot. Flight Lieutenant Sean

:12:36.:12:39.

Cunningham died when he was ejected from his hawk while on the ground at

:12:39.:12:44.

RAF Scampton 18 months ago. The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed

:12:44.:12:48.

in April that no criminal charges would be brought.

:12:48.:12:51.

A family in Lincolnshire is calling for wider testing for heart

:12:51.:12:55.

conditions in young people and their families. 22-year-old Sarah

:12:55.:13:02.

Tenwick-Ford from Bassingham died in her sleep in February last year. Now

:13:02.:13:05.

her family is trying to raise awareness of the condition, and says

:13:05.:13:08.

relatives of those diagnosed should also be tested as a matter of

:13:08.:13:14.

course. Sarah Tenwick-Ford was a happy and

:13:15.:13:19.

apparently healthy young woman. But in February last year, she died in

:13:19.:13:24.

her sleep of an undiagnosed heart condition. For her family, it came

:13:24.:13:33.

as a bolt from the blue. There were no warning signs, no nothing. It

:13:33.:13:36.

didn't just rip a hole in our family, it ripped a hole in the

:13:36.:13:43.

community. It was only afterwards were speaking to the coroner and her

:13:43.:13:49.

GP that we discovered she had passed away from this syndrome. We knew

:13:49.:13:53.

nothing about this. We didn't know where to go for help or who to look

:13:53.:13:56.

to for advice. For one East Yorkshire family, it's a familiar

:13:56.:13:59.

story. Richard and Donna Fell from Hornsea lost their teenaged son Josh

:13:59.:14:02.

in 2011. Since then, they've raised thousands of pounds for the charity

:14:02.:14:05.

Cardiac Risk in the Young, or CRY, at events like this football match

:14:05.:14:15.
:14:15.:14:15.

held last weekend. I would like to see the government bringing it in to

:14:15.:14:20.

screen kids in schools, along with other in operations at 14 years of

:14:20.:14:24.

age. It would pick up on problems like what we lost Josh two.

:14:24.:14:28.

charity CRY says that each week in the UK, 12 people aged 35 and under

:14:28.:14:30.

die from undiagnosed cardiac conditions. 80% of those won't have

:14:30.:14:34.

had any previous symptoms. In Italy, screening is mandatory for young

:14:34.:14:37.

people involved in sport. They have reduced the incidence of young

:14:37.:14:47.
:14:47.:14:48.

sudden cardiac death by 89%. There is a 50% town is that somebody else

:14:48.:14:55.

in the family will have the condition. For example, siblings are

:14:55.:14:59.

at an immediate risk, and either mum or dad, if it is genetic, will be

:14:59.:15:02.

the carrier. Sarah's family are now holding a series of fundraising

:15:02.:15:05.

events, including a 900 mile bike ride. They want to raise awareness

:15:05.:15:08.

of the condition, and ensure all relatives of those affected are

:15:08.:15:18.
:15:18.:15:22.

screened as a matter of course. Still ahead tonight: Taking up the

:15:22.:15:25.

Challenge - Hull KR prepare to avenge their worst defeat of the

:15:25.:15:29.

season. Preparing for the storm - the chef

:15:29.:15:39.
:15:39.:15:46.

heading to work with Gordon Ramsay. If you have a photograph you are

:15:46.:15:51.

proud of, we will show it halfway through the programme. The last one

:15:51.:16:01.
:16:01.:16:07.

for this week was taken by Alf this week. You have been poorly.

:16:07.:16:13.

Thanks for popping round with the grapes! That is not true, that is

:16:13.:16:20.

how rumours start. It is a good rumour for you! Not at all! Moving

:16:20.:16:26.

on with the weather, a mixed bag. It will not be as nice as last weekend.

:16:27.:16:31.

There will be dry weather, but it will cloud over and there will be

:16:31.:16:35.

rain from the West as we go through tomorrow. It is all down to this

:16:35.:16:38.

area of low pressure, this included front which will bring outbreaks of

:16:38.:16:48.

rain. To end the day, we have some sunshine. We see the cloud deck up

:16:48.:16:51.

nicely to bring sunny spells, but still the odd risk of a shower in

:16:51.:16:57.

the short term. Then it will mainly be a dry night, with variable

:16:57.:17:02.

cloud, some clear spells and temperatures falling back. The

:17:02.:17:12.
:17:12.:17:22.

start the day tomorrow. But it will be fairly limited. We will see the

:17:22.:17:25.

cloud thickening and any showers in the morning will gradually merge

:17:25.:17:29.

into longer spells of rain for a time as the band of rain spread

:17:29.:17:32.

eastwards. By the end of the day, we should see a return to some

:17:32.:17:39.

sunshine, but there could still be a few heavy showers around.

:17:39.:17:48.

Temperatures are half the values of last week. There will be a moderate

:17:48.:17:52.

breeze from the West. Sunday starts off quite pleasant through the

:17:52.:17:57.

morning hours, but the cloud will thicken during the afternoon. By the

:17:57.:18:01.

end of the day, some rain in places, quite a breeze as well. Then

:18:02.:18:06.

we are back to a mixture of sunny spells, scattered showers and some

:18:06.:18:12.

overnight frost. I can't believe you said that. You dropped me right in

:18:12.:18:18.

it. I prefer the days when you would not say boo to a goose. The flowers

:18:18.:18:28.
:18:28.:18:31.

were a bit over the top, but the Both Hull FC and Hull Kingston

:18:31.:18:34.

Rovers could take important steps towards a Wembley final this

:18:34.:18:36.

weekend. Both are involved in Challenge Cup games, with Hull

:18:36.:18:39.

facing Wakefield tonight and Rovers taking on Wigan on Sunday afternoon.

:18:39.:18:41.

Our sports reporter looks at their chances.

:18:41.:18:43.

They've tasted success in this competition before, which for Hull

:18:43.:18:47.

FC came in 2005, but for Hull KR was back some 33 years. How they'd both

:18:47.:18:50.

love a crack at the trophy again. First, though, Hull, who defeated

:18:50.:18:52.

London last week, begin as favourites against Wakefield

:18:52.:18:57.

Trinity, led by former coach Richard Agar. David Doyle Davidson used to

:18:57.:19:00.

play and coach the game, but for the past 30 years, he's reported on the

:19:00.:19:08.

sport. Cup games, he says, are unpredictable. You don't have to to

:19:08.:19:13.

be the best team in the league to win cup ties. It is what happens on

:19:13.:19:18.

the night. If the game plan is right, you have a chance. This will

:19:18.:19:22.

be a tough game. A month ago, Hull KR received their record Super

:19:22.:19:25.

League, beating an 80 point demolition at the hands of Wigan.

:19:25.:19:35.
:19:35.:19:35.

Guess who is back in town on Sunday? Wigan are a great side. But every

:19:35.:19:41.

team has weaknesses and we will do the best we can. The only way to

:19:41.:19:46.

beat Wigan is to get among them. You have really got to be mean, cruel

:19:46.:19:49.

and nasty, and you have to absolutely throw everything at them.

:19:49.:19:52.

If they can win, the Hull sides will be in quarter finals, and Wembley

:19:52.:19:59.

will feel very close indeed. And just a reminder, commentary of Hull

:19:59.:20:04.

FC's game can be heard on BBC Radio Humberside. Kick-off in that match

:20:04.:20:09.

is at eight. And they'll have coverage from Hull KR's cup tie

:20:09.:20:19.
:20:19.:20:28.

against Wigan on Sunday. Kick off at Craven Park is at three.

:20:28.:20:31.

Last night, we told you that the transport minister is backing a

:20:32.:20:35.

group of campaigners in Lincolnshire who want speed limits reducing

:20:35.:20:38.

through their villages. People living between Grantham and Sleaford

:20:38.:20:42.

say the council has not listened to them. We have had a big response on

:20:42.:20:52.
:20:52.:21:18.

When Hull first announced a bid to be named the UK's City of Culture,

:21:18.:21:23.

it was regarded as a rank outsider. But now the odds on winning the

:21:23.:21:27.

title have been cut at the same time as the city's art scene has received

:21:27.:21:35.

a major boost. Art - it's perhaps not what Hull is

:21:35.:21:45.
:21:45.:21:48.

well known for. But with �3 million, that could be about to change.

:21:48.:21:52.

People in the city will see new work. They will see new

:21:52.:21:58.

opportunities to get involved in making work across all art forms.

:21:58.:22:03.

They will see new spaces popping up, but also bringing in national

:22:03.:22:06.

and international artists in the city to work with communities here.

:22:06.:22:09.

Interest in the arts is steadily growing here. Tens of thousands of

:22:09.:22:12.

people came to see the Larkin toads, which were dotted around the city,

:22:12.:22:15.

and the Freedom Festival - a mixture of street theatre, music and comedy

:22:15.:22:20.

- is now in its sixth year. But it seems Hull City's promotion to the

:22:20.:22:30.

Premier League has further boosted the city's appeal. In fact, the

:22:30.:22:34.

bookies have lowered the odds for Hull to become the UK's city of

:22:34.:22:41.

culture from a 14-1 down to 6-1. But there is still a long way to go.

:22:41.:22:46.

Tester is out in front at 4-1. It is hoped that the extra cash will

:22:46.:22:50.

improve and strengthen what is already here. At the moment, we are

:22:50.:22:54.

standing in the heart of the old fruit market in Humber Street, and

:22:54.:22:58.

here, there are lots of different businesses and community

:22:58.:23:02.

organisations working in the old fruit sheds, making amazing things

:23:02.:23:10.

happen. There is a jewellers, there is a venue called Fruit, there is a

:23:10.:23:15.

recording studio, art galleries, a museum, all sorts of things happen

:23:15.:23:21.

here. Artists like Rob say more needs to be done to keep talent

:23:21.:23:25.

local. We have a great School of Art and design in Hull. Loads of

:23:25.:23:29.

graduates leave every year and go to cities where there is an

:23:29.:23:32.

infrastructure to support them and they have career opportunities. If

:23:32.:23:37.

there could be some investment in persuading those people that there

:23:37.:23:41.

was something worthwhile staying for in Hull in terms of galleries,

:23:41.:23:44.

workshops and business opportunities, that would be

:23:44.:23:47.

fantastic. It is hoped that the funds will help paint a better

:23:47.:23:56.

picture of the area. The odds have gone down. Fourth

:23:56.:24:00.

favourite at the moment. We just have to knock Chester off the top

:24:00.:24:07.

spot in the city of culture 2017. A cook from North Lincolnshire is

:24:07.:24:10.

hoping to impress one of the country's most famous chefs.

:24:10.:24:13.

Victoria Jolly from Burton Upon Stather is swapping her country caff

:24:13.:24:16.

to work at Claridges. She'll spend two weeks working with the team at

:24:16.:24:18.

Gordon Ramsay's restaurant, and hopes to learn the secret

:24:18.:24:21.

ingredients in some of his famous dishes. Gemma Dawson has been to

:24:21.:24:27.

meet her. Not everyone enjoys sharing a

:24:27.:24:37.

kitchen with Gordon Ramsay. Start again! But then Victoria isn't your

:24:37.:24:41.

average cook. Having quit a career in finance to follow her dream of

:24:41.:24:44.

becoming a chef, she's now preparing to head to the capital for a

:24:44.:24:51.

placement at Ramsay's restaurant at Claridges. It is quite nerve

:24:51.:24:55.

wracking. I have met him before and I was really nervous the first time

:24:55.:25:01.

I met him. He is very tall, which I always find intimidating. But he is

:25:01.:25:10.

a nice man. I would not serve that to my dog, let alone a diner.

:25:10.:25:14.

Victoria is hoping Gordon will be more complimentary about her

:25:14.:25:17.

cooking. Victoria currently runs her own caff in Burton Upon Stather.

:25:17.:25:20.

Grandma and Auntie Pat popped in this lunchtime for coffee and a

:25:20.:25:28.

cake. She is very clever in everything she does. She turns out

:25:28.:25:32.

some lovely food, and we have sampled nearly all of it. She has

:25:32.:25:35.

done very well. News of Victoria's placement soon spread among the

:25:35.:25:45.
:25:45.:25:48.

regulars. She will have to up her game with Gordon Ramsay. She will

:25:48.:25:51.

need some earmuffs for all the swearing! But Victoria's ready for

:25:51.:25:59.

the challenge, having already cooked for celebrities. James Atherton, he

:25:59.:26:05.

came in. Gary Barlow. Some footballers, but I don't really know

:26:05.:26:08.

who they are! But before she heads to London, there's plenty more

:26:08.:26:16.

orders to complete. Let's get a recap of the national

:26:16.:26:19.

and regional headlines. A woman is found alive after 17 days

:26:19.:26:23.

trapped under rubble in Bangladesh - she's pulled from the ruins of a

:26:23.:26:28.

collapsed clothing factory. Warnings that the Government is

:26:28.:26:31.

running out of time to secure affordable flood insurance for homes

:26:31.:26:36.

that are at risk. Tomorrow: Some dry and bright

:26:36.:26:39.

weather to start, but showers will merge into longer spells of rain and

:26:39.:26:42.

it will develop into a cloudy day, with showery rain, perhaps

:26:42.:26:52.
:26:52.:26:52.

brightening into the evening. Now some responses on the subject of

:26:52.:26:56.

flooding. Sean says the government should do more to help people who

:26:57.:27:00.

have a high risk of flooding. Money should not come into it. Gareth

:27:00.:27:05.

says, I have no sympathy with people buying homes on a flood plain. Andy

:27:06.:27:10.

says, I live on the coast, never been flooded in the 26 years I have

:27:10.:27:14.

lived here. But my insurer withdrew all cover for the entire post could

:27:15.:27:20.

just because of a perceived risk on an environment agency map. Gary says

:27:20.:27:22.

the reason the insurance companies are kicking up a fuss is because

:27:22.:27:27.

they don't want to pay out. Are they the new bankers? And Eddie says, I

:27:27.:27:32.

live on top of one of the highest points in Yorkshire. How am I at

:27:32.:27:39.
