Thank you BBC news for putting it video for us all here on ATS to enjoy reading or vidding if that's possible. Here comes the copy/past of the first
sentence with a link to a mp4 clip.
A man has died, roads and rail lines have been blocked and thousands left without power as torrential rain flooded parts of the UK.
Two storms, which began in Wales, grew stronger with one heading across the Midlands, the other heading northwards to Newcastle and into Scotland.
The Environment Agency has 10 flood warnings and 47 alerts in place, mainly in the Midlands and northern England.
Both main rail lines between Scotland and England are blocked by landslides.
West Mercia Police say a man who died in flood water in Shropshire is believed to have been in his 60s.
A spokesman said his body was discovered in a stream in Bitterley near Ludlow just before midday following a search.
