A caravan holiday park in Northampton is being evacuated over concerns that overnight rain could cause flash flooding. Guests and caravan owners at Billing Aquadrome in Great Billing, Northampton, are being moved to alternative accommodation after the Environment Agency issued a severe flood warning.
