BRITAIN is facing a brutal bashing as four storms in two weeks expected to bring more floods and 50mph gales, according to the Met Office. 

Storms are expected to take the country by force tonight through to Wednesday as a 1,200-mile wide storm rinses the country. 

The North and West will experience the most rainfall but all parts of the UK will have spells of showers with near 50mph gusts in the South. 

Forecasters have even suggested the UK could be experiencing an “early autumn” as continuous wet and windy weather has drenched much of the country over the last week.

“But summer fights back after August 18, with a dried and warmer end to August.”

The Met Office have announced forecasters are “closely monitoring” further weather warnings as high rainfall and low pressure is expected to make its may through much of the country next week.

Danger to life flood warnings were issued earlier after damage to Toddbrook Reservoir threatened the collapse of Whaley Bridge dam. 

Hundreds of people from Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire – and the surrounding areas – were evacuated as a precaution.
