Britain starts to clean-up after heavy rains and high winds caused bad flooding in the midlands, west and north of Britain.

At least 3 people were killed in the flood.

The flood is disrupting parts of the road and rail network, and damaging buildings as heavy rain falls on north-east England and north Wales.

Heavy rain caused a landslide in Whitby, North Yorks that damaged some houses and five houses will be demolished within two days.

Five of the houses of the 150-year-old row of terraced houses in Whitby, North Yorkshire, will have to be torn down after their gardens became saturated by rainfall and slipped away last night. Another two at the end of the property also faced demolition but it is thought they will now be allowed to stay. (MailOnline/DailyMail)

One places that was worst-hit by the flood is the small city of St Asaph, North Wales.

Experts warned there could be more downpours in certain areas early next week and 140 flood warnings are still in place across England and Wales.

The South East may be facing further flooding as river levels continued to rise.

The River Thames at Oxford had reached its maximum and downstream towns such as Reading, Berks, and Sunbury in Surrey were on flood alert.
