Title: Backing For South West Homes Hit By Floods (2 of 3)

Of interest to: South West

Script details:
South West homeowners who live in areas at high-risk of flooding are set for more affordable insurance.

It’s partially funded by an industry-wide levy.

South West Conservative MEP, Julie Girling, says although it's not mandatory, she's confident enough firms will take part:
