UK floods: Residents stranded in Yorkshire care home

Nearly sixty flood warnings are still in place in England, Scotland and Wales, as the worst September storm for thirty years has left river levels dangerously high.

Some areas have seen more than double the average monthly rainfall since Sunday.

Towns and villages along the River Ouse in North Yorkshire are particularly at risk and emergency teams are assessing whether or not to evacuate an elderly residents' home.
