Storm Angus continues to batter Britain with 75 flood warnings put in place in England and Wales.

On Monday (21 November) torrential rain closed roads, shut schools and led to the cancellation of many train services with forecasters warning areas already flooded are at risk of more flooding in the next 24 hours into Tuesday.

The Environment Agency put flood warnings in place across the Southwest, the Midlands, North East, North West, Wales and the East of England and issued a further 207 flood alerts across England and Wales.

A Stena Europe ferry which left Ireland at 9am on Monday was left stranded overnight after it was unable to dock at Fishguard, Pembrokeshire due to the weather, the BBC reported.

Great Western Railway (GWR) told commuters not to travel owing to the "severe flooding at a number of separate locations" across their network.

A tree fell onto overhead power lines in Withington, Manchester, causing damage to a tram on the Metrolink.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue said two people were rescued from a car on the B3109 in South Wraxall while in Carmarthenshire, a man had to be helped from a van which had become trapped in flood water.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said the weather will be "a bit better and not quite as wet" on Tuesday (22 November).

"The heaviest and more persistent rain is clearing northeast wards, so it will affect southern and eastern parts of Scotland through tonight and early tomorrow morning," he added.

"But behind all the rain across the rest of the UK there is a lot of showers and some of these heavy and thundery at times - these will gradually clear as we go through tomorrow," The Telegraph reported.
