Flooding funding for Wainfleet and Yorkshire

NFU Vice President Stuart Roberts said: “The Government’s offer to help farmers affected by the devastating floods in Wainfleet and Yorkshire is great news for farmers in these areas.

“I hope this will mean affected businesses will now be able to recover more quickly and get on with the job of producing safe, traceable and affordable food for the nation.

“Events like these expose the vulnerability of the farming sector so it is positive that the government is taking water-related issues seriously to help restore our valued and productive farmland.

“We will continue working with internal drainage boards and farming charities such as RABI, the Princes Trust and the Farming Community Network to help those affected the best we can in the short term.”
