Weather and sport: The country's most flood-hit grounds

Staines Town FC
The impact of the weather has been keenly felt in football's lower leagues, with Conference South side Staines Town only able to play once at their Wheatsheaf ground since 28 December. We asked you to send in your pictures to #pitchinspection and this is one of several featured in this gallery.
Leatherhead's Fetcham Grove
Staying in Surrey, Ryman League Division One South side Leatherhead have only been able to play one home match at Fetcham Grove this year.
Arundel Football Club
In Sussex, County League side Arundel FC are appropriately known as the Mullets, due to the presence of the fish in the nearby River Arun. Some may have taken up residence on the Mill Road pitch. Just down the A27 Fontwell Park racecourse suffered its third postponement of the season after having 534mm of rain since mid-December
Everton's Goodison Park
The extreme weather has also hit the Premier League, forcing the postponement of Wednesday's two matches in the north west of England. Everton 's game against Crystal Palace was called off on police advice after nearby buildings were damaged by high winds.
Manchester City's programme kiosk takes a tumble
In Manchester, City's match with Sunderland was postponed because of high winds, which took out this programme kiosk.
Home Park, Windsor
Rugby union has also been impacted, especially Windsor's 1st XV. They have only played one match at Home Park this year. At least Great Britain's Olympic rower Adam Freeman-Pask has been given the chance of some additional training.
Worcester racecourse
There is unlikely to be any horse racing at Worcester in the near future either, with the course submerged after the nearby River Severn burst its banks.
Newbury races
Horse racing has suffered 29 abandonments since the start of the year, down on the same period in 2013, when extremely cold conditions led to 41 postponements.
A cricket ground in Worcestershire
Cricket grounds have also been affected, especially in Worcestershire. The clubhouse at King's School looks like it is surrounded by a lake.
New Road
Worcestershire's New Road ground has again been hit by floods. In June 2007, the ground was under water rendering it unplayable for the remainder of that season, while it was under water for five weeks last year.
East Molesey Cricket Ground
East Molesey Cricket Club along the south bank of the River Thames, close to Hampton Court Palace, has played host to stars such as former West Indies captain Richie Richardson and ex-Australia batsman Mark Waugh, but the ground is currently more reminiscent of a boating lake.
BBC weather forecast maps for Friday, Saturday and Sunday
BBC weather presenter John Hammond: "Further stormy weather is expected on Friday, lasting to the weekend, bringing further impacts from heavy rain, strong winds and some snow for the north. Into next week it looks like the weather will become less extreme. There may be rain at times, but there will be lengthier dry spells."
