Counting the cost of UK flood crisis

There will be "no penny pinching" when it comes to funding flood relief efforts, David Cameron has said as he announced extra financial help.

Homeowners and businesses will get grants of up to £5,000 to pay for future flood protection, he told MPs.

But Labour leader Ed Miliband said he had doubts about this "grand promise" of assistance and that those still at risk needed a "speedier response".
