The UK has had its wettest April in over a century, with some areas seeing three times their usual average rainfall, according to figures from the Met Office.

With recent downpour predicted to continue there are 37 flood warnings in place, including 20 in south-west England and a handful each in the Midlands, north-east England and East Anglia.

Tewkesbury, Chipping Sodbury and Upton On Severn are just some of the areas to have already encounter flooding, as this aerial footage shows.
