UK flood warnings: Fresh floods misery as River Avon bursts its banks

Some parts of the UK are close to having their wettest autumn on record following more downpours, experts say.

More than 100 flood warnings are in place across England as communities continue to mop up after disastrous deluges that forced more than 1,200 people to abandon their homes.

The River Avon, Severn and Teme have all been affected by the recent rainfall and levels are expected to remain high over the next few days.
