Floods in UK: Travel disrupted as storms head north

Flooding is disrupting parts of the road and rail network, and damaging buildings as heavy rain falls on north-east England and north Wales.

Closures, delays and safety warnings are affecting dozens of A-roads, while cancellations and delays have also hit some national rail services.

About 200 flood warnings and 300 alerts are in force in England and Wales.

The environment secretary urged people to keep up to date with flood warnings to avoid "terrible tragedies".

Danny Savage reports.
