Transport has been disrupted after Storm Desmond brought winds, torrential rain and flooding to parts of the UK.
Cumbria was worst-hit by flooding with a number of roads closed. In Scotland about 28 flood warnings and alerts are in place with some main roads closed owing to landslides and flooding. There are no trains running between England and Scotland via Preston, while road restirictions are in place on the A66 and other routes.
In North Yorkshire, officers cordoned off the junction of Tadcaster Road and St Helen’s Road, in York, for two hours on Saturday after North Yorkshire Police said St Edward’s Church had become dangerous to passers-by and drivers. Motorists were told to avoid the area. In some of the worst affected areas in the Yorkshire Dales, one car became stuck in flood water on the A684 between Appersett and Hawes after water levels rose above 3ft. The road was impassable throughout the weekend.
Safe driving from Britannia Driving School!
