Brits evacuated from flooded town as RAF moves in after nationwide washout

Streets and properties in the area were completely flooded, forcing people to leave their belongings and abandon their homes. 

The news comes as The Met Office issued another weather warning amid severe floods and buckets of rain being dumped across Britain. 

In his latest weather forecast, Luke Miall from the Met Office said more rain is coming this evening.

“As this system pushes up from the southeast through the course of the night, it will re-intensify and continue through much of Thursday,” he said.

The government’s flood information service has issued 119 flood warnings over the last week with 16 of those severe flood warnings — with “immediate action” required.

With more rain on the way, people in the warning zones are advised to turn off gas, water and electricity, move belongings upstairs or to safety and move family members, pets and their car to safety.

According to the Met Office, the wettest-ever June for the UK was in 2012 when an average of 149mm of rain fell.

Last month, weather forecasters predicted a “June inferno” with wall-wall sunshine.
