UK holidaymakers and expats caught up in the floods in southern Spain are being assisted by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
Flash flooding that began on Friday in the popular tourists spots of Malaga, Almeria and Murcia, have left eight dead - none believed to be British - and have forced hundreds of people out of their homes.
Jackie Broad, 58, who lives in Mojacar, Almeria, said she had seen cars washed away in the floods.
"The river at the bottom of our road has burst its banks. There was a lot of water, in some places up to the roofs of shops and houses.
The water has run away now but it's left about a foot of mud everywhere. A lot of the roads are closed so we're having trouble getting around."
