UK weather: Homes and transport hit by flooding


Over 200 homes have been flooded and train services disrupted as heavy rain continues across parts of the UK.

About 80 areas in England and Wales are being warned to expect flooding, with northern England the worst affected. Flooding has also closed sections of major roads, with more than 100 vehicles trapped on a 30-mile stretch of the A1 in North Yorkshire.

The Met Office has warned that some areas could see 50mm (2in) of rain - an average fortnight's worth - by the end of Tuesday.
