Environment Agency concern over more rainfall in South West

Flooding is continuing to cause major problems in south-west England and parts of Wales.

With just two days to go until Christmas, rail services have been suspended and many roads are flooded. In Devon, one woman was rescued by a police helicopter after she was swept away by floodwater and left clinging to a tree.

There are more than two hundred flood warnings in England and Wales.

Jeff Boyd from the Environment Agency spoke to BBC Breakfast from Lostwithiel in Cornwall, and said further rainfall predicted for Sunday night was "a concern".
