South Yorkshire Mayor pushes for more flood defence funding

The Sheffield City Region Mayor is calling on the government to invest more more into South Yorkshire.

Dan Jarvis has sent a detailed budget submission to the treasury, which would see equal investment in the north, as there is surrounding London.

He has asked for £200m for flood support - plus £300m to connect Doncaster Sheffield Airport to the East Coast Mainline.
