Wild weather ravages Europe

Torrential rain has been sweeping parts of Wales and England, causing travel chaos and forcing the evacuation of homes and schools.

Helicopters have been sent to rescue people from homes in Worcestershire, a hospital has been flooded in West Sussex and a man has died in his home in Cumbria.

Roads have been badly affected in the Midlands and across southern England, with flights and trains cancelled or late.

In complete contrast, parts of central and southern Europe have been hit by a heat wave which has claimed a number of lives.

In Romania, the health ministry has reported two more deaths, bringing the total for the week to seven.

Bushfires have broken out in neighbouring Bulgaria, while Macedonia has declared a two-week crisis.
