There has been severe flooding in parts of the UK as high tides have combined with heavy rain and strong winds.

The Environment Agency issued severe flood warnings in the south west of England, Wales and the Midlands.

Residents in parts of Dorset and Aberystwyth were evacuated from their homes ahead of high tide on Friday night, which has now passed.
