BBC Breakfast’s Jayne McCubbin has been reporting live from York this morning.
She talked to David Wilson from York Rescue Boat about his team’s readiness to help should the flooding get worse.
He told Jayne:
The river’s got another half metre to rise throughout the day.
We’re concerned for some of the low-lying properties but, all the rest of it, York’s still open for business.
