Britain faces another week of weather misery after rivers burst their banks across the country today.
Met Office forecasters issued a yellow weather rain warning for 6am to 8pm on Tuesday, saying homes and businesses would likely be flooded and power supplies face ‘some interruption.
The warning covers swathes of north and south Wales, along with parts of north west England, including Manchester.
And the Government has now issued 30 flood warnings, meaning flooding was ‘expected’, and 66 alerts, meaning it was ‘possible’, across England.
York: The River Ouse has broken its banks again this morning in York city centre
Shrewsbury: A partially submerged Frankwell car park in Shrewsbury, which has been closed due to it’s proximity to the river Severn
Buckinghamshire: Vehicles drive underneath a railway bridge through floodwater during rainy weather in Taplow

The Met Office said: ‘Outbreaks of rain will spread across England and Wales during Tuesday.
‘This will be heaviest and most persistent across parts of northwest England, particularly over higher ground.
‘Rainfall totals of 60-80 mm could accumulate over parts of Cumbria.’
The Met Office also warned that parts of Snowdonia could see 100mm of rain on Tuesday.
Forecasters say that today’s miserable conditions are down to ‘heavy blustery showers’ moving in from the west ‘with the odd rumble of thunder at times’.
‘There is more to come this afternoon,’ forecasters wrote on Twitter.
It comes as the River Ouse broke its banks again this morning in York city centre, flooding riverside roads and pathways.
And a partially submerged Frankwell car park was pictured in Shrewsbury, which has been closed due to its proximity to the river Severn.
Tomorrow, Britons can expect slightly more positive weather with drier conditions and less brutal winds and rain expected – ahead of Tuesday’s washout.
