    Flooding has continued to cause misery in Germany after a dam broke in the Fischbeck area in the north east on Monday.

    Over the weekend, around 23,000 people had to leave nearby Magdeburg, as water levels in the Elbe rose to a record of 7.48 metres, around 5 metres above normal.

    Volunteers in the city worked hard to save an important electric substation.
