Storms funding needs to treble, says NRW's Jeremy Parr

Further work is needed to improve Wales' resilience to storms if the challenge of extreme weather is to be met, a report has said.

Severe weather this year had "seriously tested" coastal defences, said the Natural Resources Wales (NRW) review.

It highlighted six priority areas of improvement including investment, community support, and developing local flood plans.

Repair work in some of the worst affected areas has already begun.

But Jeremy Parr from NRW said three times as much money needs to be invested annually in flood protection than two years ago.
