Many are bracing for further flood chaos today, as more heavy downpours hit areas in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire overnight. Business owner Pam Webb has experienced the worst of this weather.
She joins us this morning from Fishlake in Doncaster, where her spa has been left ruined and insurers are now saying they won't foot the bill.
Someone else currently facing a flood crisis, is farmer Henry Ward. He’s seen his 250 acres of farmland turn into a sea, with the water so deep he’s having to use a boat to get to his marooned home.
Alice Beer is joining him on his boat today to see first-hand the shocking impacts these floods have had. Alice will also be sharing her essential advice, for those like Pam desperately battling with insurance companies over the flood damage, and her tips for better insuring your home against such disasters.

The motivational speaker did so with the help of a solar powered handcycle and his life-saving doctor, Geoff Watson.
But his biggest motivator? His eight-year-old son, Sam. Alex and Geoff join us to discuss this incredible achievement, and what’s next for the fundraising duo.
