Farron: Questions to be asked on flood defence funding

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has said questions must be asked about cuts to flood defence schemes.

Speaking from Kendal, Mr Farron said he was "very cautious" about pointing the finger.

But he added: "The question we now need to ask ourselves is whether it was right to cancel some of the funding for flood defence schemes over the last few years."

He said the last three governments bear some responsibility.
