Flooding brings parts of the region to a standstill

The worst September flooding in a generation has left homeowners and businesses mopping up, and made travel almost impossible through some cities, towns and villages.

The A1, which was closed for thirty miles northbound from Dishforth for two days, has re-opened, but one of the main roads into York, the A19 through Fulford, is still closed. David Hirst has spent the day in Cawood near Selby, where rising water has closed the bridge over the River Ouse.
