Hundreds of people have been forced to leave their homes after flooding has hit Kent.
Heavy rain has lashed the county for days, leading to flood warnings in place across the area.
About 200 homes in Little Venice caravan park, Maidstone, were evacuated yesterday, as the borough council, Environment Agency and fire service worked to help those in at-risk areas.
Many residents had already fled the area over concerns about the rising water levels, but about 20 people were still on the site and were helped to safety.
A MBC spokesman said: "Incident Liaison Officers have been visiting the areas most affected including Yalding, Laddingford, Collier Street, Staplehurst, Marden, Headcorn and Little Venice.
"At Little Venice around 200 residents were evacuated from their homes yesterday.
"Many of the residents sourced their own alternative accommodation, but MBC assisted those who weren’t able to find somewhere and provided them with somewhere to stay.

"According to the Environment Agency Maidstone currently has one flood warning affecting the River Medway between Yalding and Maidstone, and one flood alert affecting the Lower River Medway.
"The MBC emergency planning team continues to monitor the situation and will assist if water levels rise and our residents become at risk of flooding."
