Flood alerts are in place in North Yorkshire after days of heavy rain on the Pennines. Riverside footpaths at King's Staith and Queen's Staith in York have been flooded. Guests at a local hotel had to move their cars from a riverside car park before the River Ouse burst its banks.
One flood warning was in place on Sunday morning at Naburn Lock on the outskirts of the city. The Environment Agency says this means flooding is expected and immediate action is required by those in the affected area.
