More September floods in Northern England & Wales

Just taken a look at the BBC News website and there is a headline "Flooding in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and County Durham"

Once again areas of northern England are suffering under flood waters with over 200 home being affected and train services being disrupted.

A regular problem area - Morpeth in Northumberland with flooding on the River Wansbeck.

There are 151 less serious flood alerts - indicating flooding is possible - for many parts of England and Wales.

Scotland is also bracing itself for problems with 10 flood warnings.

According to the BBC report "On Monday this week, some parts of Britain experienced the equivalent of a month's rainfall in 24 hours on Monday and 70mph winds, causing disruption and lengthy delays to rail services in the South West, the Midlands, northern England and Wales. Some areas saw up to 50mm of rain up to 18:00 BST, and a further 25mm to midnight, with 5mm falling every hour in many areas."

This is not what people want after such a wet spring and summer.

If you live an area that is likely to be flooded and found your insurance company is increasing your insurance premium or excess, there are companies out there who can help you get a good deal.
