The ABI will be disseminating the Environment Agency's (EA) new flood risk data this week.

The EA released the data to the ABI on 29 January and the association has been evaluating the data before sending it out to members.

An ABI spokesman said it was a "full rolling set of data" illustrated with digital mapping.

"It is the most detailed information available to insurers," he said.

The data divides the country into postcode areas and looks at the percentage of risk in three different categories. These include properties protected by defences with a 1:75 year chance of being flooded, 1:75 to 1:200 and a low risk 1:200 chance of flooding.
