The total cost of the damage done by this summer's floods continues to rise, with Sheffield the latest city to be allocated Government funds for road repairs.
Transport Minister Rosie Winterton has announced £6.3 million of Government money has been allocated to Sheffield Council to pay for repairs.
'This flood repair money should allow work to continue on the damaged roads, and I also want to assure local people that we are continuing to work with the council to identify further costs and we will seriously consider any further claims for funding,' said Winterton.
Estimates suggest that the total cost of flood damage will reach £2.5 billion, with about £40 million required to repair damaged roads.
