Heavy rainfalls have led to flooding in many towns in England over the Christmas holidays, especially in the South East and mid Wales. As of this morning, the number of flood warnings and floods was still increasing.
The rains have been extremely heavy for days; Brighton has had more than three times the average monthly rainfall in only 11 days. While the rains in the south are expected to drop off today, they are on the increase in the north and into Scotland.
In many areas, army units have been deployed to help with flood control and evacuations.
