Flooding misery is continuing as rising waters put thousands of people's homes at risk around the UK.


The wet weather is still causing chaos in many communities, with roads, rail and buildings affected.

A block of flats in Newburn, Newcastle, is said to be close to collapse and Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, was split in two after a bridge was closed.


Homes and businesses in York city centre were also flooded after the River Ouse burst its banks.

Local people told the BBC the flooding could be the most severe in recent memory, however the Environment Agency said the river would not breach the city's flood defences.


There are still nearly 60 flood warnings - indicating flooding is expected - and more than 100 flood alerts - meaning flooding is possible - in England and Wales, and three flood alerts in Scotland.

Flooding in York could be the most severe in recent memory, according to locals


In Wiltshire, an 11-year-old boy is in a "potentially life-threatening condition" after being struck by lightning shortly after 15:00 BST.


While in Newcastle, police branded looters "despicable" after a bicycle shop in a flood-hit community was raided while roads were blocked by water and silt.
