Chris Gurney sent this photo of fire engines pumping flood water away from the Paddington to Penzance main railway line in Exeter, Devon. The floods have caused many train journeys to be cancelled in south-west England and in parts of Wales. Photo: Chris Gurney.
Worcester racecourse has been completely flooded. Ian Yates who captured this photo says: "This is the result of the River Severn bursting it's banks in Worcestershire." Photo: Ian Yates.
Scotland has not escaped the flooding. Kim Bennett in Haugh Park, Cupar, Fife found a kayaker making the most of the rain, which she says has "turned her local park in to a loch". Photo: Kim Bennett.
Sam Holden sent in this photo, he says: "This shows the flooding in our road which hasn't flooded in 20 years and to the left of the picture is the main train line from London Paddington to Exeter St David's which looks more like a river than a railway." Photo: Sam Holden.
On Saturday families have been evacuated in Helston, Cornwall, after rising river levels threatened to flood their properties - heavy rain is causing disruption across the UK. It comes as many people are trying to travel ahead of Christmas. Photo: Adam Van Dorp.
In the Cornish town 190 residents were advised to leave their homes and a rest centre was opened for those affected. BBC journalist Andrew Plant said conditions were wet but improving. Photo: Kathy White.
The village of Coychurch, just outside Bridgend, South Wales, has also been affected. John Dickinson said flood waters have now receded and trains have started up again for the first time in several hours - he lives close to the main rail line. Photo: John Dickinson.
Cornwall Council said that the situation in Helston had eased, but agencies remained on stand-by in case of further downpours.
Residents in Braunton, north Devon, say they have been left isolated by a flooded main road. Annette Essex, who runs a pet shop, says she has not seen flooding like it in 14 years in the town.
The town's shops and restaurants - whose owners were hoping for a busy day of Christmas cheer - must now turn their attention to keeping mud and water out, as more homes and businesses are flooded.
Water levels on the River Exe in Exeter have also risen. Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said everything was being done to help people get to where they need to be for Christmas.
