Flood risk spending is 'cutting risks,' says NRW

Thousands more homes in Wales have been protected from the worst the weather can throw at them, according to Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

It says risks have been reduced for more than 6,500 homes and businesses thanks to £165m being spent on flood and coastal defences since 2011.

But more than 200,000 properties are still at risk, including 21,000 at high risk.

Floods have hit homes in places like Ceredigion and Denbighshire.
