Minister to visit flood victims
Flooding in Hull
More than 8,000 homes in Hull were damaged in June's floods
Floods recovery minister John Healey is visiting people in the East Riding of Yorkshire to talk to them about their experiences of the summer floods.

During his visit Mr Healey will meet Anita Wilkinson, a woman who is still living in a caravan after being forced out of her home in Hessle by floods.

He will also be having talks with local politicians and council officials.

The East Riding was among several parts of the UK to suffer when bouts of severe flooding struck in June.

More than 8,000 homes in Hull alone were affected and many of those evacuated.
