Hundreds of flood warnings still in place.

Summary: Hundreds of flood warnings remained in place across England and Wales as flood-ravaged towns woke up to another day of devestation.

Hundreds of flood warnings remained in place across England and Wales on Wednesday morning as flood-ravaged towns woke up to another day of devastation.

Although the weather improved for much of the UK overnight, the Environment Agency said earlier there was still a possibility of more flooding and disruption on Wednesday and Thursday.

In north Wales hundreds of people spent the night away from their homes after parts of the River Elwy burst its banks and flooded properties.

The EA warned of a risk of flooding in Gloucester, Salisbury, Oxford, Sunbury, Abingdon and York, while mobile flood defences have been erected in Shrewsbury and Bewdley in Worcestershire.

It highlighted areas around slow-responding rivers including the Thames, Trent and the Severn were at particular risk.

Some 173 flood warnings and 184 flood alerts are still in place across England and Wales, along with two severe flood warnings in the devastated city of St Asaph, Denbighshire and around Rhuddlan, both in north Wales.
