Homes left completely under water with Britain braced for even more rain

Shocking flood pictures show homes are being left nearly completely under water – with more heavy rain due to batter the UK.

Britain has been drenched by its fourth weekend washout in a row with entire towns left – yet again – submerged in floodwater.

Storms Ciara and Dennis already left parts of the nation flooded before Storm Jorge delivered further misery on Friday and Saturday.

The latest awful weather has now left some towns even deeper underwater, with entire homes even being submerged.

These dramatic pictures show floodwater engulfing an entire bungalow in East Riding, Yorkshire which is among the hardest regions hit.

The bungalow’s owners, Kevin and Catherine Lorryman, say their home is now set to be demolished because of the “heartbreaking” damage.

"We are going to have to demolish I think," Kevin told the BBC.

Catherine added: "We are just in a dream world at the moment and there are people all over this town exactly the same, it's a nightmare."

Kevin's story was first reported by Hull Live on Wednesday when his home was under just 2ft of water.

At that point the water levels had risen to just below the windows, consuming the outside the property.

But now it has dramatically risen to the roof of the bungalow.

“It was 1971 when that house was built and it’s never been wet," he said at the time.

"It’s never been like this. Never. It’s 2ft deep. If it goes another foot, we’re going to have to go in and put stuff on top of the kitchen worktop.

"We’re going to have to get a container hired and physically take all the stuff out with a team of us.

"We’ll probably never get insurance again. I’m going to have to flood proof it. I’m going to rebuild it in case it happens again. That’s all I can do."

Sadly for the Lorrymans and thousands of other families across the UK, the weather forecast shows more rain is now on the way.

An area of low pressure in the Atlantic is set to sweep the country on Wednesday, according to WXCharts, and unleash further downpours.

It appears the rain will mostly affect central and southern England, as well as Wales which is also among the hardest hit by flooding.

The Met Office declared this week that February was the wettest since records began in 1862 – with a UK average of 202.1mm, beating the February 1990 figure of 193.4mm.
