Call for North Yorkshire to get a share of a Government Flood Grant

Call for North Yorkshire to get a share of a Government Flood Grant

5:31am 25th August 2009

The Vale of York MP Anne McIntosh is trying to draw attention away from her own potential deselection problems, by voicing her concerns about flood protection.

She says rural areas, like Pickering and Thirsk, have been overlooked by the Environment Secretary Hilary Benn.

He's allocated just over 9 million - out of a total pot of 16 million - to big cities like Leeds, Hull and Nottingham.

Meanwhile, Anne could be ousted by her own political party in 8 days time at a Thirsk and Malton Conservative Association meeting.
