The family of a woman who died in her flooded home have paid tribute to an "active and independent" 91-year-old who was "full of life".
Margaret Hughes was found yesterday in St Asaph, North Wales, after torrential rain caused widespread flooding in the small city.
The elderly woman's daughter, four grandsons and granddaughter paid tribute to her in a statement.
They added that Mrs Hughes, who was set to turn 92 tomorrow, was "independent and strong willed, with a real sense of humour and fun".
Downpours across the UK have caused widespread devastation but with the rain making way for drier weather, the huge clean-up operation can begin.
ITV News correspondent Rupert Evelyn reports:
Forecasters predicted clearer weather for the UK but temperatures are expected to fall below freezing in many areas tonight.
The Environment Agency (EA) warned some rivers could still rise and 126 flood warnings were still in place across England and Wales.
In Whitby, North Yorkshire, a row of cottages overlooking the historic harbour are set to be demolished after a landslide left them in danger of collapse.
Torrential rain led to the gardens sliding down the slope below them and they are now 30ft lower than the 150-year-old terrace.
One resident, Jude Knight, told ITV Calendar News: "I'm just devastated, I've lost everything."
ITV News correspondent Debi Edward reports:
Prime Minister David Cameron paid tribute to the emergency services and "good neighbours" who have helped fight the flooding.
At Prime Minister's Questions, he also praised the official organisations and members of affected communities who had done "extraordinary things" to help.
EA figures showed that since Wednesday 1,600 properties had been flooded, while flood defences had protected more than 54,000 homes.
