The Prime Minister was heckled as he visited flooded properties in the Kent village of Yalding,
Angry flood victims have confronted David Cameron this afternoon, heckling the Prime Minister as he visited a village seriously affected by the Christmas storms.
One woman, named as 49-year-old Erica Oliveras, said her local council had done nothing to help villagers in Yalding, Kent, where homes were severely damaged on Christmas Eve.
And in a heated on-camera exchange with the Prime Minister, the woman said she had been left stranded in her home with no electricity after council workers “went off on their holidays”.
She told Cameron: “We need electric. As I say, the council, from Monday, we have been trying to contact them, but they have all decided to go on their holidays. Nothing.”
She later told The Guardian: “We had no practical help whatsoever.
