UK floods: 'This could be the end for our business'

Christopher Neville, co-owner of a paper manufacturing company in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester, says "everything is ruined" after the River Irwell flooded the premises.

He told the BBC the firm had not been able to get flood insurance due to its proximity to the water and he now felt "this could be the end" of the business.

Some 500 soldiers have been brought in to deal with "unprecedented" flooding in Yorkshire and Lancashire.
