Serious flooding across Europe and UK

Police and environmental bodies are advising people to keep away from South Devon, especially those river valleys between Plymouth and Paignton because of very, very serious flooding

Likewise, this year's Silverstone event in Northamptonshire is having serious problems with its car parks and camping ground, having to turn away over 10,000 people today because of sodden ground and deep water

In southern Russia, torrential rains have also caused unprecedented flooding throughout the region, with 99 people killed overnight and some towns being completely washed away

Waders are clearly suffering from the effects of the weather, with large numbers of presumably failed breeding birds appearing here in the UK, including WOOD SANDPIPERS and RUFFS
