No water risk details in home information packs

Ministers faced renewed criticism over the flooding crisis after it emerged that controversial new home information packs will not include details about the flood risk to properties.

Conservatives said that the scheme was "utterly untrustworthy and misleading" because new figures showed that one in ten new houses had been built on flood plains.

The troubled Home Information Packs become compulsory for people selling houses with four or more bedrooms from tomorrow.
