UK floods: Fears as storm heads north


The north of England and Wales are braced for possible flooding as the weather front which brought heavy rain to southern England moves north.

There are about 260 flood warnings and 280 flood alerts in England and Wales, and two flood alerts in Scotland.

The serious flooding has brought misery to many communities - more than 800 homes have been flooded, with Devon and Cornwall particularly hard hit - and two people have died in the storms.
