As storms continue to batter the country, the public has never been bettered prepared for flooding, Wales' environment body has said.

Andy Wall, flood forecasting manager at Natural Resources Wales, said £20m had been invested since 2006 in coastal flood defence schemes and forecasters are able to inform the public of storms days in advance.

A review of coastal flood defences and the impact of the recent storms has been ordered by the Welsh government.

Mr Wall spoke to Oliver Hides on BBC Radio Wales.
