Call for help with £400m flooding repair

The government is being urged to help local authorities amid warnings they face a £400m repair bill after severe weather damaged infrastructure.

The provisional £400m figure comes from a survey of highway managers in England and Wales - with a final total due by April which is expected to be significantly higher.
