Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn during a visit to Conisborough on Saturday.

The visit follows a visit to the region on Saturday, during which the Labour leader said that Prime Minister Boris Johnson was wrong to say that the severe flooding was not a national emergency.

A COBRA meeting to coordinate the government’s response to the floods is set to take place later.

Mr Corbyn said if the floods had hit Surrey and not South Yorkshire, it would have happened on day one.

Boris Johnson visited flood hit Matlock at the weekend, but has not paid a visit to South Yorkshire.
