Almost 300 flood warnings issued as Britain faces further deluges
Nick CollinsAs the heavy rain and high winds leave the south, people in the Midlands are now braced for the weather to hit. Around 300 flood alerts have been issued in England and Wales and two are in place in Scotland.
Over the weekend, two people died and more than 800 homes were damaged as parts of Britain were hit by the worst flooding in half a century over the weekend.
A 21-year-old woman was killed in Exeter on Saturday night after being trapped under a fallen tree, while in Cambridgeshire a 70-year-old man died when his car plunged into a swollen river.
