President expresses solidarity with flood victims in UK

A family is rescued from the centre of York by boat, as swamped towns and cities continue to struggle against the Christmas floods. With more rain forecast for the middle of the week there may be worse to come and the Environment Agency has more severe flood warnings in place - meaning there is still a danger to life.

President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca has written to Queen Elizabeth to convey support and express concern with the people of England, Scotland and Wales, in view of the flooding in parts of the United Kingdom.

Up to a month's worth of rain has fallen across northern England in recent days, and flood waters have hit cities and towns including Manchester, Rochdale and Leeds.

British soldiers helped evacuate hundreds of people from the rising floodwaters in York over the weekend.

President Coleiro Preca expressed her solidarity with those who are being evacuated from their homes.
