Cumbria floods: Appleby's high street under water again

Communities in Cumbria have been flooded again - some for the third time in less than a month - following torrential rain and high winds.

Worst affected have been the Appleby, Keswick, Kendal and Glenridding areas, where river levels have risen.

Defences in Appleby were breached when the River Eden burst its banks, flooding 40 properties and prompting several rescues.

Ed Thomas reports from Appleby.
