UK cleans up as flood water recedes

Dozens of properties were flooded in St Asaph, Wales after the River Clwyd burst its banks on Tuesday, after seven days of torrential rains. Parts of England have also suffered from flooding. According to Reuters, insurers could face up to $1.6 billion in insurance claims, the highest figure since 2007.
