These payments are being made under the Bellwin scheme, which covers the costs incurred by local authorities during immediate action to safeguard residents and property or prevent suffering as a result of a disaster or emergency.
The payments include:
* Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council will receive £435,721
* North Lincolnshire Council will receive £70,082
This brings total payments under the Bellwin scheme so far to £10,385,036 and is on top of the £63million of other Government support for all flood-hit areas.
