9th August - Today's News: Flash Floods Hit Eastern England
Heavy storms in the north and east yesterday with over 50mm falling in an hour in the March area as flash floods hit Cambridgeshire and a busy night for firefighters as flooding brings chaos to Norfolk and Cambridgeshire whilst Louth 'was like a sea' as torrential rain brings chaos to northern Lincolnshire
In Eire, beach closures forecast as Hurricane Bertha sparks pollution fears and it looks like being a wet and windy day across much of England and Wales on Sunday too as even Michael Fish says there's a storm coming. But no hurricane! Just a normal Atlantic depression containing some remnants of tropical moisture from the now dead Bertha. Btw Piers Corbyn assures us it will all pass south and hit France instead.
