Brown: We’ll provide what’s needed in flood crisis

Author: By Rosa Silverman, Press Association

Rescue operations have been under way in Cumbria, where the situation has been
described by the Environment Agency as extremely serious.

The Prime Minister said: “The Government will assist. I have said to the chief
constable (of Cumbria police, Craig Mackey) if he needs anything we will
provide it.

“I’ve said to (Environment Secretary) Hilary Benn that if there are facilities
needed we will make them available.”

He praised the emergency services for the job they were doing.

“We want to do everything we can to help them on what has been one of the
wettest and most difficult days in Cumbria that we’ve seen,” he said.

He hoped, he said, that as many people as possible would be as safe as
possible in the next few hours.

He added: “My thoughts are with the relatives of those people missing at the
moment and with the emergency services who are doing an absolutely brilliant
job.”
