Many homes and businesses have been badly affected by flooding that has hit south-west England and parts of Wales and Scotland. After Saturday's downpours left parts of Devon, Cornwall and south Wales under water, overnight also saw flooding in Scotland. Pictured here is the town of Stonehaven, which is close to Aberdeen.
Rhona Mitchell sent in this image from Stonehaven, where dozens of residents have been evacuated and a reception centre has been be set up.
Residents have also been evacuated from properties in Stoke Canon, north of Exeter in Devon, after the River Exe burst its banks.
North Devon has also been affected. The owners of this shop in Braunton, near Barnstaple, piled up sandbags in an attempt to keep the flood waters out of their property.
After the floods comes the salvage work - here people can be seen moving shop stock out onto the street as part of their clean-up operation.
It was not just floor-level items that were damaged in the Braunton floods - even these pick and mix boxes could not escape the rising waters of the River Caen.
Chris Gurney sent this photo of fire engines pumping flood water away from the flooded 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.
In the first operation of its kind, inflatable dams were placed on the railway line at Cowley Bridge, near Exeter, Devon, to stem the flow of water where the track flooded.
The Environment Agency has flood warnings in place across all of its English regions. Here a Nottinghamshire car park at Gunthorpe, on the banks of the River Trent, is under water.
Benches were partially submerged by flood waters in Ross-On-Wye. Wetter weather will return to central and southern parts of England and Wales overnight on Sunday, bringing the threat of further flooding.
