The Welsh government said flood risk management was a key priority.

The Met Office said more rain was expected this afternoon and overnight, which could be heavy at times and is expected to last until Wednesday.

Hayley Hammond took these pictures of flooding at her mother's house on the Glanrafon Estate in Bontnewydd, Gwynedd.

She said: "The water came in really fast and was up to her knees after a couple of minutes.

"The chest freezer in the garage was floating. The kids' Christmas toys were ruined."
