    Background: Heavy rain in North Wales has caused severe flooding. The main holiday route to the area has been blocked, and in the town of Abergele in North Wales the waters have destroyed several shops and caused extensive damage to many houses.

    The town flood came without warning, on Saturday evening 93 July, sending a swirling torrent of mud and water through the streets. The fire service was kept on the alert, and on more than one occasion used lifelines to rescue townspeople.
