England – Homes and businesses were flooded across a swath of south-west England, schools were shut, dozens of roads closed and major rail lines blocked. By Monday evening rail travellers were being told not to try to travel to the West Country. Though the worst of the deluge is thought to be over, more flooding was expected on Tuesday as rain that had fallen on high ground fed through rivers and streams on to lower, saturated ground. Coming hard on the heels of Storm Angus, which swept across the UK at the weekend, rivers struggled to cope with the latest deluge. As darkness fell on Monday evening there were 45 flood warnings – meaning flooding is expected, with immediate action required – in place, mainly in Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
