The number of severe flood warnings in place stands at four – three at Croston in Lancashire, where an RAF Chinook helicopter has been delivering one-tonne sandbags in a bid to try to shore up the nearby River Douglas.
The fourth was issued in response to the collapse of Tadcaster Bridge in North Yorkshire which caused a nearby gas pipe to rupture.
The area around the 18th century stone bridge, over the River Wharfe, was cleared and 12 people were evacuated from their properties.
An Environment Agency spokesman warned “significant flooding” was expected in the area, adding: “The situation is serious and there is a significant risk to life.”
Police in York said it was “extremely disappointing” thieves had targeted homes submerged in flood water.
North Yorkshire Police’s acting Supt Mark Grange said: “It is impossible to comprehend why anyone would want to bring further suffering to those who are already in a very vulnerable situation.”
The Met Office has issued amber weather warnings – meaning “be prepared” – for rain in Strathclyde; Central, Tayside and Fife; Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian and Borders; Grampian; north-west England and Northern Ireland for Wednesday.
There are also yellow weather warnings – meaning “be aware” – for rain for the Highlands Eilean Siar, Wales, north east England, South West England and Yorkshire and Humber.
On Tuesday, Communities Secretary Greg Clark announced on Tuesday £50m extra funding to help households and businesses affected by flooding in northern England. The government says it has now pledged more than £100m towards the crisis.
