Experts are calling on the Government to make sure money set aside to better protect flood-hit properties is used wisely.

Grants of up to £5,000 are being made available to ensure the thousands of homes and businesses so far affected by flooding are less susceptible in future. But specialists are worried that money from Prime Minister David Cameron’s ‘Repair and Renewal’ scheme, which begins on April 1, might end up being simply wasted if it’s not properly directed.
