Hundreds of homes have been devastated by flooding in England following a powerful storm and a week of heavy rainfall.

There are more than 250 flood warnings in force, the majority in the Midlands, East Anglia and southern England, with many residents forced to evacuate their properties.

Flooded roads and railway tracks are bringing more delays for travellers.

A major incident has been declared in Nottinghamshire around the River Trent.

Many living close to the river have had their homes and businesses ruined, while major roads have been cut off in some areas with emergency services reporting difficulties in attending incidents.

The Environment Agency the Trent's levels were some of the highest seen in 24 years.

It peaked at 5.35m, just shy of the record set in 2000, when the river reached 5.5m in height.
