More than 60 flood warnings are available throughout England after days of prolonged rain.

Seven severe life-threatening warnings remain on the River Don in South Yorkshire.

Yorkshire and Midland cities have been disrupted and, in some cases, evacuated as rivers overflow their banks.

The former High Sherriff of Derbyshire Annie Hall was driven by the flooded River Derwent near Matlock to death.

In addition to the serious warnings, the Environment Agency has issued another 54 warnings – that is, floods are expected – and 99 warnings.

National Rail said that a number of routes are still affected by flooding, and recommended that train passengers check these before departure.

One of the hardest hit areas was Bentley in Doncaster, where 12 years ago flood plague hit many homes.

A resident told BBC Radio Sheffield, "The concern is that our insurance policies are expensive due to the floods of 2007. Now we are all worried about being reinsured."

Reporter Richard Cadey said some residents are "angry and frustrated" about the Doncaster Council.
