Flood risk warning issued by Environment Agency

Britain may be in for a new bout of flooding in coming months, the Environment Agency has warned.

Rivers are full after the wettest April to June on record, followed by more rain in July, September and October.

The agency warns that people should be ready for floods even with relatively small amounts of rain.

Pete Fox from the Environment Agency says there is an increased risk of river flooding in November and December, especially in the south-west and northern and western parts of England and Wales.
