On Wednesday night, Nick Bailey, an assistant chief constable with Greater Manchester police, said: "Unfortunately - despite the best efforts of all agencies involved - we are now at the stage where evacuations are necessary in areas of Didsbury".

Heavy rainfall has already seen multiple major incidents and flood alerts declared across England and Wales.

These amounts of rainfall along with snow melt present a real threat of flooding and people should keep a close eye on flood warnings from the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales.

Parts of northern England are being urged to prepare for the risk of significant flooding in some areas from early tomorrow morning, the Environment Agency said.

"We looked at particularly Manchester, we've got a situation potentially developing there", Mr Johnson said.

But the company - a subsidiary of Switzerland-based Zurich Insurance Group - has now made the free counselling service a standard part of its flood policies and believes it is the first in Britain to do so, Nichols said.

Heavy rain is expected to hit the United Kingdom overnight on Tuesday, with the Met Office warning homes and businesses are likely to be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.

People are being told to stay away from the river edge in Tameside as the river swells. But it really is advisable - follow the advice. "If you are told to leave your home, then you should do so".

"People may think this is a minor issue at the moment, still relevantly minor by standards of previous floods, but never underestimate the suffering, the misery, that floods can cause people".

"The system will work its way through, we are expecting significant totals of rainfall and when you combine that with snowmelt it can lead to localised flooding across the affected regions".

"There are already parts of Cumbria that have already seen over 80mm of rain since midnight on Tuesday and there's a large number of places that have seen 50mm, and we are going to see further rain over the next 24 to 36 hours".

Nearby Seathwaite saw the second highest total, with 107.2mm, and some isolated spots could see up to 200mm, the Met Office said.

Labour's shadow floods minister Stephanie Peacock said urgent action was needed.
