Flood Defending 'Insufficient', NAO Warns

Spending on flood protection in England is “insufficient” to maintain defences, the National Audit Office (NAO) has warned. It said half of the country’s defences were being maintained to a “minimal level”, and were likely to “deteriorate faster”. The NAO also said spending on them had been cut in real terms between 2010/11 and 2014/15. The government said it was spending “more than ever before” on resources. Read the BBC story.
