Storm Frank has been lashing the northwestern English county of Cumbria.

Residents and business-owners in the region had braced themselves for more flood misery after weeks of heavy rain.

Scott Larner is a local shop owner. Although he prepared for torrential rain and gale-force winds after official warnings, his shop was damaged by the floods.

"I think everybody and every company is doing the best they can to recover and to deal with the problems in hand. You know, we have insurance, it's going through the motions, it's just taking more time than you would like. But you have to allow it that time. Especially with bank holidays and the Christmas period. It's just aggravated the situation. But in time, things will get sorted, I have every confidence."

The incoming storm has already left a trail of widespread disruption across Northern Ireland.

Scotland is also on high alert for flooding and disruption.
