More than 800 homes have been flooded after storms hit parts of England and Wales, the Environment Agency (of England) has said.

It confirmed that 816 houses have been affected after a band of heavy rain and strong winds swept across the country.

Devon and Cornwall are badly hit, along with Malmesbury in Wiltshire and Kempsey in Worcestershire.

Two people have died in the storm - a woman killed by a falling tree in Exeter and a man whose car crashed into a swollen river in Cambridgeshire.

There are more than 220 flood warnings in place across England, which means people should take action because flooding is expected.
