Communities across Britain are facing another day of flooding and travel chaos, following the torrential rain brought by Storm Dennis.

More than 300 flood warnings are still in place across the UK, including five severe warnings in England, which mean there is a danger to life.

Rescue teams worked into the early hours to get stranded residents out of their homes by boat in Worcestershire.

Natural Resources Wales said the scale of the flooding was “unprecedented”.

Travel continues to be disrupted across the UK, with A-roads closed in Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire in England, and Powys and Monmouthshire in Wales. Roads are also closed in parts of Scotland, including the M90 Friarton Bridge.

Train services are affected on lines run by CrossCountry, Great Western Railway, Merseyrail, Northern, South Western Railway, Transport for Wales and Scotrail.

The south Wales valleys saw the highest water levels for more than 40 years over the weekend, according to Jeremy Parr, head of flood and risk management at Natural Resources Wales.
