One of the most severely hit areas has been Bentley in Doncaster, where flooding affected many homes 12 years ago. One resident told BBC Radio Sheffield: "The worry is our insurance policies are expensive as it is because of the 2007 floods, so now we're all worried whether we're going to get reinsured."Reporter Richard Cadey said some residents were "angry and frustrated" at Doncaster Council - claiming it had not been providing sandbags early enough to prevent properties from flooding.
Annie Hall's family said they were “in great shock"
