A Worcestershire street has come out top in a vote of the most embarrassing road names in England.
Clive Dainty was working at an engineering company when a 335-litre vessel exploded.
People are still waiting for the water to recede before finding out the true cost of the floods.
A Worcestershire NHS trust has said it is co-operating fully with a police investigation into the deaths of a number of patients cared for by Sudip Sarker, a consultant surgeon who worked in the county.
– Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
"An expert multidisciplinary team has reviewed the medical records of all his patients who had undergone a major operation (eg for bowel cancer).
"Patients we were concerned about were recalled for further assessment and appropriate investigations.
"A separate review of all patients who had any contact with Mr Sarker (outpatient appointments or minor procedures) is being performed by a team of specialist external surgeons.
"Patients in this group who require further assessment/ investigation are also being invited back to the hospital."
Police have confirmed they have launched an investigation into the deaths of a number of patients cared for by consultant surgeon Sudip Sarker, while he was working in Worcestershire.
Mr Sarker was employed by the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.
North Worcestershire Superintendent Kevin Purcell said the investigation began after officers received a letter in December last year.
He said: “We were made aware that there were a number of concerns in relation to the deaths of patients in 2012 who had been under Mr Sarker’s care.
"We are in the early stages of obtaining the relevant information from hospitals and other health organisations in order to conduct our investigation.
“We cannot be specific about numbers at this time but can confirm that the deaths of three patients whose joint inquest was adjourned in December (2013) form part of this inquiry.
"The families of those people have been informed and updated on the situation."
The Worcester Wildlife Trust say that dredging is not the answer to river flooding.
In contrast to the views of many, they say they are compensating for dredging in the 1970's and 1980's, by allowing greenery to grow to absorb water and creating bends in waterways to slow down flow.
A farmer in Worcester says he has lost the majority of his crops following the severe flooding.
Stephen Watkins was hit in 2007 but says this time round it has been even worse.
He says whole trees have fallen into the river, causing it to slow down and spill over onto his wheat, spring onions, peas and beans crops.
Plans for redundancies and £3.7 million of cuts to Hereford and Worcester Fire Service are "dangerous and wrong", local firefighters say.
Representatives of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) say they were informed of possible compulsory redundancies at a meeting with senior managers last week.
As well as £2 million in back-office savings, the fire authority will vote today over plans to cut £1.7 million from the service’s frontline budget.
Steve Gould, FBU secretary for Hereford and Worcester, said:
These cuts are dangerous and could cost the lives of firefighters and the general public.

On a visit to a flood-hit region of Worcestershire today David Cameron said that spending on flood defences has been 'increased'.
The Prime Minister sat down with residents in Upton-upon-Severn to discuss the flooding which has affected the area three times since Christmas.
Last week, the Government pledged £10million of help to businesses affected by the floods
