Environment Agency continues to fight Malton's flooding

A huge pumping operation to rid parts of a North Yorkshire town of floodwater is continuing.

The area around Malton has been battered by rain since the beginning of the week - forcing people from their homes.

While the rain has stopped falling, drains are struggling to cope.

Fire fighters and the Environment Agency are pumping water into the nearby river.

Mike Dugher says that although the town's flood defences have held there are still residual problems.
