The north of England has been battered by heavy rain over the last 24 hours causing widespread flooding, with the Environmental Agency urging people to stay away from swollen rivers. A month’s worth of rain fell in Sheffield causing dozens of people to be held in a shopping centre as the heavy rain closed several roads while there has also been flooding in Greater Manchester, West and South Yorkshire and Derbyshire.
