Report Digital Video: East Lyng Village Latest Victim of Floods

 

Since October 2013 the UK has been facing a crisis of extreme weather. Violent hurricane strength storms have battered the South West coast of England and Wales and floods have spread cross Somerset, Surrey, Sussex, Kent and Berkshire, leaving a death toll in double figures and thousands of homes, farms and businesses destroyed. In December a storm surge devastated large areas of the East Coast of England.

For the last week I have been in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset to cover the floods and the latest round of storms to come in on the Gulf Stream ‘conveyor belt’.
