THE Labour government should be ashamed of itself. I am talking about the coverage in The Press, (Swamped, January 13) of York losing floods funding from the Government.

What are they thinking about? Perhaps they should meet the residents concerned and give them compensation.

There have got to be proper flood barriers up to protect the residents prior to flooding. The people of York deserve nothing less. Please listen to the people of York.
