Prime Minister Calls Emergency Cobra Meeting

DOWNING STREET – The prime minister will chair a Cobra meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) to discuss the government’s response to recent flooding.

The emergency meeting will be held five days after the flooding hit large parts of northern England and the Midlands.

Downing Street’s announcement of the meeting came after Jeremy Corbyn sent a letter to Boris Johnson calling on him to hold a Cobra meeting and “take personal charge” of the Government’s response.

The Labour leader said he objected the Prime Minister’s assessment at the weekend that the flooding was “not looking like something we need to escalate to the level of a national emergency”.
