A storm surge has reached north Wales after leaving a trail of chaos along the Welsh coastline.

About 30 properties were flooded in Cardigan where a pregnant woman was rescued and some people trapped in their homes.

Dozens of roads are closed and the rail network is badly affected around Wales.

Four severe flood warnings - where life may be at risk -remain in place in Flintshire, Barmouth in Gwynedd, and in the Usk Estuary at Newport.
