Flood threat remains as rain eases

Residents in up to 500 properties in north Wales have been advised to leave their homes after the River Elwy broke its banks - and forecasters say the threat of floods remains in many areas.

An emergency centre has been set up at a leisure centre in St Asaph after water levels spilled over the top of flood defences.

In North Yorkshire, more than 50 houses in Pickering are currently under threat from rising water levels.

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