The Commission has proposed aid to the United Kingdom worth 60 million euro from the EU Solidarity Fund following the floods in 2015.

Text:

In December 2015 and January 2016 heavy rainfall and strong winds led to flooding in parts of the United Kingdom. The flooding affected essential infrastructure, especially for transport, as well as public buildings, private homes, businesses and farmland in several regions of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The proposed aid of 60 million euro now has to be approved by the European Parliament and Council.
