UK hit by floods once more


Large parts of the UK are once more underwater.

Six severe flood warnings are in place for the West Country and nearly 200 warnings for other parts of England and Wales.

Luckily, so far no one has been injured but the bad weather is causing travel chaos in the run-up to Christmas.

The town of Braunton in North Devon was effectively cut off after the local river burst its banks.

The river breached a 1.4 million euro flood defence scheme in the town, which was only completed in June.

Forecasters are warning of heavy rain and strong winds across most of the country until Monday.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
