It's been ten days since the Thames Valley was hit by one of the worst nights of flash flooding ever seen in the region.

Thunderstorms battered towns and villages with two weeks' of rainfall falling in just one hour

Newbury was one of the worst affected areas, with many residents saying the Council should have been more prepared.

But the local authority says it's doing its best with a drainage system constructed during Victorian times.

How are local people coping with the aftermath? Cary Johnston has been to find out.

Cary spoke to Estate Agent Tony Hillier, Jacqui Copas from Hair off the Dog groomers and resident Abigail Begley.
