Firefighters from South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service were applauded today as they left the Bentley area of Doncaster after helping out following the floods.

Bentley and Fishlake have been some of the worst affected areas after the River Don burst its banks last week when a month's worth of rain fell in a single day.

The Environment Agency is warning communities in South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire to remain vigilant as hopes grow that the worst of the flooding is over.
