  11. Government's 'watching' brief on Yorkshire floods

    The Environment Secretary George Eustice has been touring flood defences in York this afternoon.

    George Eustice

    Mr Eustice said the government was keeping a close eye on the developing situation.

    "In the next two days we are likely to see continuing water level rises particularly in Yorkshire.

    "We are keeping a very close watching brief on this because this is a situation that could develop over the next two to three days even if we don't have more rain."

    The River Ouse in York is expected to peak at about 4.8m above normal levels on Tuesday morning.

  12. Volunteers are ready whatever the weather

    A lot of emergency workers have been working hard to shore up flood defences across Yorkshire.

    A whole host of volunteers are also ready to act depending on the situation.

    David Wilson (pictured above) is a volunteer with York Rescue.

    He says that at the moment the flood levels in the city aren't out of the ordinary, but his team is on standby to help in case the situation gets worse over the next 24 hours.

    The team has 26 operational volunteers that can be called on if necessary.

    Quote Message: We can get in to evacuate people from buildings. We're qualified to evacuate people from cars, in floodwater. Or even just do the humanitarian - make sure people are okay if they are surrounded by water." from David Wilson York Rescue

  13. Rotherham train lines blocked by flooding

    Rail passengers in Rotherham face problems today and tomorrow after rail lines were blocked by flooding.

    Rail lines blocked outside Rotherham

    Tracks around the railway station have become submerged by floodwater and Network Rail expect the situation to continue into Monday.

    Water is being pumped away but before lines can reopen engineers will need to carry out safety inspections.

    In the meantime, bus replacement services will be in operation and will run every 30 minutes between Meadowhall and Swinton.

    Matt Rice, Route Director for Network Rail’s North and East Route, said: “Heavy rainfall has led to significant flooding on the railway in Rotherham. This means that the lines in and out of Rotherham Central station are closed and will remain so tomorrow.

    “This does mean disruption to services, so we would strongly urge all passengers to check before travelling which they can do via National Rail Enquiries or with their train operator."

  14. Secretary of State at Foss Barrier

    The newly-appointed Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has been in York this afternoon.

    George Eustice was given a tour of the Foss Barrier:

    It was the failure of the barrier, situated where the River Foss drains into the Ouse, in 2015 which resulted in 600 properties flooding in the city.

    The barrier is designed to prevent the Ouse forcing water back up the Foss and it also uses pumps to transfer water from the Foss into the Ouse.

    It has undergone a £38m upgrade since 2015.
