Stricken Doncaster Fishlakes Village Supported By Ultrimax
Some residents in a flood-stricken Yorkshire village could be out of their homes for up to three weeks as efforts continue to make the area safe.
Doncaster Council said 1,900 people had been taken to safety, with the village of Fishlake being one of the worst hit.
About 200 Army workers are in South Yorkshire supporting the flood effort.

Shelley Beniston, who is organising supply runs in Fishlake, told Mr Johnson there had not been enough help from authorities.
When the prime minister asked if there was anything he could do to help, she replied: “I think it’s more or less all coming in now, a little bit too late though.”
The PM said the government was “plainly going to have to do more” to equip places with flood defences.
Speaking in Warwickshire on Wednesday evening Mr Johnson added: “We as a country need to be investing in the long term in flood defences.
“We have already put £2.6bn in as a government and we’ve ensured that places that are particularly vulnerable get more per capita.
“That’s why I stress importance of investment in infrastructure”.
