UK floods: Danny Alexander on 'unprecedented' investment
Funding for more than 1,400 flood defence projects to protect 300,000 homes has been announced by the Treasury.
Ministers say the "vital" £2.3bn investment - not made up of new money - will help prevent £30bn of damage.
Major projects to be allocated cash include the Thames Estuary, being given £196m, and Humber Estuary, given £80m.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander described the investment as "an unprecedented, long-term capital investment in flood defences".
