UK braced for further severe flooding

Many homes and businesses have been damaged by the heavy rains across the UK over the past few weeks.

One antiques shop in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire had their basement flooded with 7 ft of water just two weeks ago.

Trish Banyard, the owner of Hebden Antiques Centre, told the BBC's Charlotte Leeming: "It was like an Aladdin's cave down here, and it is unrecognisable.''

There are more than 80 flood warnings in place across the UK over the next 24 hours.
