Homes are almost totally under water as yet another storm batters Britain

Homes have been left almost totally underwater as yet another storm batters Britain - and father-to-be Boris Johnson still hasn't visited a single victim.  

Strong winds of up to 70mph, showers and snow across parts of Scotland and northern England are forecast for Sunday morning, with many areas waking to a frost and ice.

There are also 87 flood warnings in place across the country and 185 flood alerts, according to the Environment Agency. 

Shocking new images from Snaith in East Yorkshire show homes deeply submerged underwater and the interiors of several houses are completely destroyed, with water rising to the level of the top of kitchen counters. 

The Met Office has issued a yellow wind warning across much of England and Wales until 9am and across Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and northern England until 3pm. 

Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, Frank Saunders, said: 'On Sunday, the majority of the UK is covered by Yellow weather warnings with some areas being covered by more than one warning, indicating multiple weather hazards.'

Heavy rain warnings for parts of Wales, South West England and North West England are indicating that some isolated areas of Wales could see as much as 100 mm of rainfall.
