Watch: We catch up with families affected by Storm Desmond

It's been a year since Storm Desmond devastated parts of the North West. We hear from the families who fear the rain will ruin their lives all over again.

Thousands of homes and businesses across the North West were swamped on this day last year.

It took months to repair the damage, after rivers burst their banks and sewers were overwhelmed by more than a foot of rain in 24 hours. The waters also claimed the life of a man who fell into the River Kent in Kendal.

Victoria Grimes has spent the day in the Lancashire villages of Churchtown and St Michael's on Wyre where residents are still counting the cost.
