East of England hit by heavy wind and rain in Bertha's wake

Storms and heavy rain have caused disruption across Britain as the remnants of what was Hurricane Bertha sweep across the country.

The Met Office issued a yellow warning for rain for most of the UK, plus two amber warnings in Scotland, and urged people to be aware of flooding, strong winds and large waves.

Fire crews in Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire have been pumping gallons of water out of swamped houses, while marooned drivers had to abandon their cars as they became stuck in flooded roads.

Richard Daniel reports.
