Flooding in Britain creates a "national crisis"

A ‘national crisis’ has been declared across Britain, due to excessive flooding, as more than 230 flood warnings and 277 alerts are in place across England and Wales.

Hundreds of homes have been flooded as heavy rain and wind continue to batter the country, with environmentalists predicting the wild weather is not over for the north.

British Prime Minister David Cameron has promised the government will help in any way it can, after describing some of the scenes in the south and south-west as ‘shocking.’

2 people have died due to the wild weather since Wednesday.
