London - Britain's army was called in to help people evacuate from their homes over the weekend, as stormy weather left parts of the country severely flooded.
Storm Desmond hit the north-east of the United Kingdom on Saturday. About 60 000 homes in northern regions were left without power and electricity.
Members of the British army assisted the emergency services in northern England, after British Prime Minister David Cameron assured Britons on Twitter that the armed services would be sent into affected towns.
One man was killed on Sunday in the floods.
