UK flooding: Landlady thought she would drown

A 75-year-old woman has told how she nearly drowned when her pub was filled with 5ft-high water during flooding in North Yorkshire.

Rowena Hutchinson said her home, the Red Lion Inn in Langthwaite, Richmond, has been ruined by the torrential downpour on Tuesday night.

She told PA that water came gushing into the pub โ€œlike a waterfallโ€, leaving her submerged up to her chin.
