Flood-prone areas in West Sussex get extra help

Some of the most flood-prone areas in West Sussex are to be given extra protection thanks to a government grant to the county council.

The award, of nearly £300,000, will mean flood protection can be installed at 40 homes in places including Littlehampton and Bersted.

Action groups will be formed of local experts who can work with agencies.

Emergency response kits with hi-visibility jackets and road closure signs will also be distributed.
