Seven people have been airlifted to safety after heavy rain caused flooding in Scotland.
The group of people, which included four children, were rescued from a farmhouse near Closeburn in Thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway, by a Royal Navy helicopter after rain forced families to be evacuated from dozens of homes and caused major road disruption.
Around 40 houses in Kirkconnel, Dumfries and Galloway, were evacuated, as were 25 in Dumfries after the River Nith burst its banks, flooding the Whitesands area.
A farm in Muchelney, Somerset, has been completely surrounded by floodwater following the recent storms, turning it into an island.
