With more than eighty flood alerts in place, the Environment Agency has warned people to stay vigilant and be prepared for more flooding.

It says the flood risk could be the highest so far this year and heavy rain has already begun to hit parts of East Anglia and the East Midlands.

Pete Fox from the Environment Agency says that people need to "think ahead".
