Flooding and heavy rain is continuing to cause chaos all over the UK. Hard hit residents from 500 homes in North Wales have been evacuated after the River Elwy broke its banks. An emergency centre has been set up at a leisure centre in St Asaph after water levels overtopped flood defences. Rising up to -3ft in places. And Inspector Mark Davies, from North Wales Police, had some sobering news as he said said: "The Environment Agency tell us water levels are rising and getting worse.

Elsewhere : in North Yorkshire, more than 50 houses in Pickering are currently under threat from rising water levels. The River Ouse in York is being monitored after bursting it's banks yesterday. And the River Severn is expected to reach its peak in Gloucester.

On the roads, some of the worst-hit areas on Monday were in Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire. And on the railways flooding is also continuing to affect East Coast rail routes including between Durham and York.

However there is some light at the end of the tunnel as forecasters say that although there was heavy rain in northern England and north Wales overnight, the rain is expected to ease through the day.
