All the TV news has nothing but reporting on the growing catastrophe affecting large parts of central England, which looks set to get even worse during the next 24 hours in the areas this BBC News map shows:
I find it incredible that, nearly four days after the torrential rains in so many places, there are still people stranded and still whole towns cut off with roads completely impassable. Many places have no running water nor electricity.
Now all the rain is swelling the major rivers you see in the map, providing near-certain misery for thousands of people.
Is the government doing enough? Well, they’ve announced a review into the flooding.
Great. Not much comfort for anyone today or tomorrow in any of the flood-risk areas in the map.
