WORLD DEVELOPMENT The UK is poised for greater misery as "life-threatening" warnings are issued in already-affected areas of the UK.

Shocking aerial images of an entire farm sprawled in Lincolnshire reveal the extent of the damage after a week of heavy falls.

The Met Office has warned that more floods are on the way with serious weather warnings issued across South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire for today and tomorrow.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is sending 100 army troops to help flood-affected areas and will give cash bail to affected councils and businesses.

Following a meeting of the government's Cobra committee, the prime minister added: "It is essential that our communities have the support they need to recover."

One of the worst-hit villages is Fishlake, near Doncaster, where residents said they received "serious warning" from the social media council five hours after their homes were flooded.

Meanwhile, a farm was disrupted by a flood in Burlingame, Lynn, when a river burst its banks.

Henry Ward's farmhouse and construction were caught in the flood when Burling Eu, a river near Lincoln, scattered its shores.

More than 1,000 acres of arable land in Lincolnshire is under water, and Henry is now calling on the environmental agency responsible for the river to do more to help.

He said: "I just want a plan going forward, which will happen in the short term.

"The violation is still open, it is still flooding our country.

"We would like to know when they will plug the hole."

Flood warnings remain a serious "life threat" in several villages along the Don River in Yorkshire.

Prime Minister Boris Nonsson has urged people living in flood-affected areas to heed the advice of the emergency services after residents in villages such as Fishlake were asked to leave.

A military helicopter was rescued to rescue captives.

It came after Annie Hall, the former Derbyshire senior sheriff, died after being struck by water in Darley Dale near Matlock on Friday.

An entire village in South Yorkshire is flooded with 700 evacuated houses.

The flood victim, Pam Webb, was left homeless and jobless after the flood.

And she has since learned that her insurance will not cover the damages.

Last week rains meant several areas in Yorkshire and the East Midlands were hit by one month of rain in one day.

In response to the floods, Prime Minister Boris Nonson tweeted: "It is terrible to see the terrible flooding across the North of England.

"Thanks to the emergency staff and the volunteers who are helping families through this difficult time."
