The Association of British Insurers has said thousands of people living in flood risk areas may be unable to get insurance next year, because the government has refused to provide funding to make premiums affordable.

Aidan Kerr from the Association of British Insurers told BBC Breakfast that a flood insurance fund was viable solution.
