Winds of up to 100mph are expected to batter west Wales and north-west England, with the Met Office issuing its first "red warning" of the winter. The warning means there is a "risk to life" and people should "avoid dangerous areas" with widespread damage expected. Sixteen severe flood warnings remain for Berkshire, Surrey and Somerset. Meanwhile, England’s Prime Minister, David Cameron has repeated his pledge that "money is no object in this relief effort". He also announced money would be available for businesses and homeowners repairing flood-damaged property to build in new defenses and said small businesses affected by flooding would get 100% relief from business rates.
