Capturing the Castle

It's a rare glimpse of what one of our best known royal residences was like during the reign of George the Third.

Twenty stunning watercolours are delighting visitors at a special art show at Windsor Castle.

The 'Capturing the Castle' exhibition displays works of English artists Paul and Thomas Sandby - and as Divya Kohli reports, the paintings give a fascinating visual record of eighteenth century Windsor.

Fighting the floods in Winchester

More flood defences have been installed in Winchester to stop hundreds of homes and businesses from flooding, as the River Itchen continues to rise.

A 70 foot barrier has been put in place along Park Avenue in Winchester to try and hold back the water and protect the city.

Hundreds of sandbags have also been laid by the Navy along the river bank at Water Lane.

Last night, the Environment Agency lowered 80 giant sandbags into the Itchen upstream near the village of Easton with the aim of diverting water away from Winchester and, instead, flooding nearby farm land.

Mary Stanley reports on the mission to save Winchester.

Henley businesses count the cost of the floods

14 severe flood warnings remain in place along the River Thames in our region.

The army has been called in to provide sandbags again today - a continuation of yesterday's work to shore up vulnerable sites in Reading.

Meanwhile in Henley, people have been counting the cost of the damage to their livelihoods and homes. Mel Bloor reports.
