England – Storm Angus batters Britain for a second day bringing floods, five-metre high waves and 97mph winds – as well as leaving 2,000 homes without power. Brits in many parts of the country have woken up to floodwater and damaged buildings this morning as Storm Angus took hold last night. A severe flood alert – a warning of immediate danger to life – was put out in Devon before the River Mole burst its banks. This morning the storm system is unleashing rainwater in the Midlands, East Anglia and Wales as it moves further north. The highest recorded rainfall so far is in Exeter where 53mm fell but that could rise with 21 flood warnings and 30 flood alerts issued across southwestern England.

Wales – Homes were flooded and people evacuated after torrential rain hit Wales. South Wales Fire and Rescue Service reported 47 flooding incidents in Maesteg, 17 in Pencoed, 10 in Pontycymer, eight in Bridgend, seven in Ogmore Vale, seven in Pontllanfraith and six in Llantwit Major on Sunday.
