Text size Aa Aa

Britain can expect some 160 million euros from a European Union solidarity fund to help towards the costs of flooding in June and July. EU Regional Policy Commissioner Danuta Huebner says she expects confirmation of this within weeks. Insurance assessors calculate that the floods which struck the north of England in June and the west Midlands and central regions in July could cost more than four billion euros. This is Britain’s first application for the disaster assistance fund set up in 2002.
