[UPDATED] Christmas Floods Strand Thousands in UK - WATCH HERE
Flooding in the UK saw hundreds of people evacuated from their homes and has left tens of thousands without electricity over Christmas.
Power in an estimated 50,000 homes, many in central and southern England, will not be restored until later on Boxing Day (local time) after outages caused by severe storms.
One power network is promising to refund people the cost of their Christmas lunch if they were forced to eat out instead of at home.
Around 90 people were evacuated overnight from their homes by the River Stour near Bournemouth on the south coast due to flooding, emergency services said.
In Dorset around two dozen people were rescued from their cars after they became trapped by floodwaters.
In southeast England, evacuations took place in the London commuter belt towns of Dorking, Leatherhead, Guildford, Godalming and Tonbridge.
The coastguard rescued people from a caravan park in Yalding, after chest-deep river waters cut the site off.
All together, hundreds of people were evacuated, emergency services added.
Meanwhile, London Gatwick Airport was running a full schedule following cancellations and delays to departing flights in the run-up to Christmas.
However it said "there are still power outages in parts of our North Terminal," due to the weather.
"These are causing delays to departing flights and our engineers are on site rectifying this," the airport said.
All departures were operating from the South Terminal, except for British Airways flights.
