Grant help for flood youngsters
More than 200,000 is on its way to children in Lincolnshire affected by last month's floods.

The money, part of a 10m national aid package, will be spent on extra summer activities for youngsters in temporary accommodation in the school holidays.

The money will also help pay for family support workers.

The county council's executive councillor for children's services, Patricia Bradwell said it would work with district councils.

She said: "We'll just have a look, see what's required and ensure that the money's put in there very quickly to help children and families over this very difficult period."

Lincolnshire also faced two flooding incidents in July.
