Hundreds of properties near the river could be flooded over the next two or three days after forecasters warned of more rain and strong winds.

The Environment Agency currently has 14 severe flood warnings - meaning there is a danger to life - in place around the River Thames.

People have been evacuated from their homes in several areas west of London including Staines and Wraysbury in Berkshire.

Andrew McKenzie, from the British Geological Survey, warned that flooding in areas from Reading to Salisbury could remain until spring.
