UK floods authorities struggle to cope

On the Eve of the holidays England is as wet as ever, with over 260 flood warnings in affect over the southern, eastern parts of England as well as Wales and parts of Scotland.

The forecast is set to be rain for the next few days.

There is great concern over the rail lines that have seen a lot of flooding over the past week.

Rail customers have been advised not to travel if possible to avoid major delays. Wales, across the Midlands and south-west England are to be hit the worst.
