Norwich North MP Chloe Smith has called on constituents affected by the recent flooding to get in touch with her.

The MP recently met with a local business owner, Bob Clarke, to see flood damage to his property.

She said: 'Having seen the hardship the recent floods have brought to this local business I know all too well how damaging flooding can be to homes and businesses.

'Flooding has been a regular problem for too many of my constituents and I helped the County Council successfully apply for Government grants to undertake improvement works aimed at reducing flooding across Norwich.

'I also work closely with the local councillor team and am meeting with Norfolk County Council to discuss the recent flooding in my constituency and the help that has been offered by the Council.

'I'm calling on constituents to get in touch and share their experiences of the recent flooding.'
