Share of £62m given to flood defence projects

Cumbria now has access to the latest round of money to spend on flood defences.

The government says Cumbria will have a share of more than £62m - which will go to parts of Yorkshire, the North East and the South East.

Projects in Kendal, Egremont and Flimby, near Maryport will receive the funding.

£5m is going to Kendal to pay for the final stage of work in the town.

Egremont will get £1.65m and Flimby is in line for £400,000.
