Many parts of the UK are braced for more flooding

More heavy rain and strong winds are expected to hit many parts of the UK on Thursday.

More than 80 flood warnings are in place across England and amber alerts for heavy rain have been issued for parts of Scotland and Wales.

So far the south-west of England has been the worst hit.

On Wednesday 20 homes in Devon had to be evacuated and a historic canal collapsed because of the downpours.

The Met Office, the people who look at weather across the UK, have said: "Coming so soon after the heavy rain which fell in many places on Wednesday, this is likely to provoke further issues with flooding."
