    Hertfordshire County Council officers have today confirmed to Liberal Democrat county councillors that the government has cut direct grant funding for the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA), the body responsible for sorting out surface water flooding across the county.

    Officers confirmed that the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) had 'rolled in' the previously separate LLFA grant into the Revenue Support Grant (RSG), a general pot. When asked, officers confirmed the RSG was precisely the same value as before.

    Liberal Democrats at Herts County Council are delighted that at last a new root and branch review of how flooding issues are dealt with has been agreed.

This has now resulted in a detailed report to council panels which highlighted the growing problems.

    The latest survey conducted by the Police Federation shows that Hertfordshire Police has the lowest morale of any force in the country.

    Recently selected Liberal Democrat Police & Crime Commissioner candidate, Sam North is calling for urgent action to address this problem.

    Sam says, "As a former police officer, I know the strain that the police are currently under and the difficulties that both officers and staff face. This survey demonstrates with absolute clarity that change must come to Hertfordshire Police, and it must start at the very top. It is no longer good enough to overlook the needs of the officers and staff who work tirelessly, risking their lives daily to protect ours."
