Homeowners still not defending against flooding

The study by Norwich Union has revealed that 83% of people living in Gloucester, Tewksbury, Hull, Sheffield and Rotherham believe there is nothing they can do to protect their home from flooding.

Consequently 95% have not taken any measures that could help prevent or significantly reduce the stress and emotional trauma of a future event. This is despite the fact that nearly half (43%) of those affected by last summer’s floods say their fear of flooding has increased since their experiences.
