Parts of North Yorkshire have been hit by flooding as the after-effects of Storm Desmond continue to hit the country.

Ripon Racecourse was underwater for much of Sunday, whilst several roads had to be closed.

The River Ure burst its banks in Boroughbridge, but levels have fallen and the main bridge has reopened.

For some properties in the town, the clean-up is now beginning.

Fire crews helped to rescue motorists trapped in their vehicles over the weekend.

Flooding was also reported in Wetherby and in parts of the Dales.
