Commenting on severe flooding in Cornwall, Liberal Democrat MP for St Austell and Newquay Stephen Gilbert said:
"The last 24 hours have been very difficult for many people.
"The way the community has pulled together in true Cornish spirit has been fantastic and our thanks and praise should go to the emergency services and other authorities who continue to do a fantastic job.
"The important task today is to ensure that everyone is safe and residents have everything they need to protect their homes and families.
"I've spoken with the Environment Minister, Richard Benyon MP, and the Environment Agency and I will continue to press the Government to ensure that everything possible is done to support residents and businesses effected."
