Prince Harry is set to visit St Michael's on Wyre in Lancashire to see how residents are coping since December's unprecedented flooding in the area.

Harry will be shown the efforts that are being undertaken to help rebuild the village which saw many lose their homes.

Lancashire was one of the worst to be affected by heavy rainfall brought by storms Desmond, Eva, Frank and Gertrude.

More than 1,700 business and homes were left damaged across its 12 districts.

In the borough of Wyre, 93 homes and 21 businesses were flooded when heavy rainfall caused the banks of the River Brock to break.

Harry will also meet soldiers from the 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, who were deployed to Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria to help flood-hit communities.
