A major clean-up operation is under way on the east coast of England after 1,400 homes were flooded in the worst storm surge for 60 years.
Jane Knapp, who has lived in the Norfolk village of Walcott for 30 years, said: "I've seen floods, but this was so quiet. The water crept up, it was like bath water overflowing when the surge happened."
She took BBC Look East on a tour of her flood damaged home, which she described as now "open-plan" and filled with "contamination".
