Storm Babet floods could last for days – officials
As Storm Babet lashed the UK over the weekend, the Environment Agency has warned flooding could last days.
Across England, 116 flood warnings remain in place – including in the East Midlands and along the River Severn.
Four people are known to have died in the floods whilst residents of hundreds of homes have been evacuated.
On Monday, Scottish FM Humza Yousaf visited Brechin, in Angus, one of the worst hit areas.
Due to the damage from flooding, some Brechin residents could be permanently removed from their homes, a local councillor has said.
Elsewhere, Nottinghamshire County Council declared a major incident over high water levels along the River Idle.
The agency said more flooding due to heavy rain was possible until Wednesday for parts of England – including around the River Severn – and the body said it expected to have to issue more warnings.
So far, around 1,250 properties in England have been flooded, the agency said.
