Cumbria Police has declared the flooding a “major incident” as emergency services in the north of England are becoming increasingly stretched. The Army has also been drafted in to help. Rescue and evacuation missions, which began on Saturday, continue in areas which have seen more than a month’s rainfall over the last 24 hours.
