- West Country (E)
The west is being battered by high winds and heavy rain - again. A staggering 4 cms of rain fell this afternoon, as a cold front moved steadily eastwards across the region.
Wind speeds reached 70 mph. Around 10,000 homes are thought to be without power in Gloucestershire.
Driving conditions have been very hazardous, with trees brought down. It's been little better on the railways with flooding causing delays and cancellations.
Rebecca Broxton reports from Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire:
A family from Melksham on holiday in Gloucestershire over Christmas had to be rescued from their cottage after being marooned by the floods.
Tyntesfield Estate in North Somerset has been forced to close after the visitor centre was flooded.
RNLI volunteers are on stand by as the region braces itself for more rain. Winds of up to 70mph are also expected.
