As The Floods Subside, The Clean Up Begins

A week after flooding started in Northamptonshire the clean-up operation begins across the county, & the Fire Brigades Union warns their flood response capability may be hit by budget cuts. Reporter Tom Percival asseses the clean-up at Woodford Mill Tea Room and at the Willy Watt marina on the River Nene, between Ringstead and Great Addington. Stuart talks to Jim Connolly, secretary of Northampton Spencer FC which needs help with its damaged club house, and to Gary Mitchell, based in Corby, the regional secretary of the FBU in the East Midlands.
