Flood risk warning issued by Environment Agency

Soaking Britain may be in for a new bout of flooding in coming months, the Environment Agency has warned.

Rivers are full after the wettest April to June on record, followed by more rain in July, September and October.

The earth is saturated and in many areas there is no more space left in aquifers to store water that seeps through from the surface.

The agency warns that people should be ready for floods even with relatively small amounts of rain.

Hywel Griffith reports.
