Sarkozy aid pledge for flood damage


President Nicolas Sarkozy has pledged 3m euros (£2.6m) in emergency aid for areas of France devastated by flood damage.

Blame is being laid on weak and aged sea defences after violent storms left at least 50 dead and thousands homeless along the country's Atlantic coast.

Alix Kroeger reports.
