Storm Francis: Wales battered by flooding and strong winds

Communities around Wales are picking up the pieces after Storm Francis.

Homes and businesses were flooded after north Wales saw higher rainfall than anywhere else in the UK.

And thousands of homes have been reconnected after losing power on Tuesday night when winds gusting up to 75mph (120km/h) battered large swathes of the country.

In Bethesda about 40 people were rescued from chalets and homes, and five people in Beddgelert were rescued by boat.

And firefighters had to help six people to safety after a property became flooded at Abergwyngregyn.
