People are being urged to leave their homes in the face of further flooding as one official warned residents are "not out of the woods yet" in the aftermath of Storm Dennis.

Police have advised residents in affected areas of Shropshire they are risking their own safety and that of the emergency services if they choose not to evacuate their properties after the Environment Agency (EA) said flooding was "potentially imminent" on Tuesday afternoon.

There were 10 severe flood warnings in place at one point across England and Wales, and warnings of continued problems amid a forecast of more heavy rain forecast later in the week.

Communities across the country are counting the cost of the weekend's storm, which has left hundreds of properties flooded, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has faced criticism for not visiting affected areas.
