Floods clean-up operation begins in North East England
After the worst flooding to his Northumberland in 50 years, a massive cleanup effort has begun in North England.
More than 1,000 properties were affected, with Morpeth being hardest hit as about 400 people were moved to safety. No-one was seriously hurt.
Council officials say it will be months before everyone affected will be allowed back into their homes.
Floods recovery minister John Healey was due to meet residents in Morpeth and emergency services staff on Monday.
Water levels were subsiding on Monday, but forecasts for more rain on Tuesday could see the River Wansbeck burst its banks again.
