Video report from ITV News correspondent Rupert Evelyn
A boatyard owner has been left with the difficult decision of either helping her neighbours or trying to protect what is left of her 30-year-old family business.
Jenny Beagle has seen her boatyard workshop destroyed with the rising water ruining engines and tools.
Residents in Shepperton, Surrey, now want vehicles to drive through the flood waters to deliver much-needed sandbags to the area.
However, if vehicles do travel through the water, there is a danger that the boats could be knocked over.
Ms Beagle, who has run the boatyard for around 12 years, told ITV News the business was first hit by the floods in December.
She said seeing the workshop ruined by the water was "absolutely devastating" and "soul destroying."
