Jo Swinson: Severe flooding should have been made a national emergency

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson has criticised the government for not taking the flooding in parts of the Midlands and South Yorkshire seriously enough.

Downpours last week meant several areas in Yorkshire and the East Midlands were struck by a month’s worth of rain in a single day.

Around half the 700 residents of Fishlake, near Doncaster, left the village and those who stayed behind have faced waist-high floods.
