British princes help flood victims as new storm looms

Princes William and Harry pitched in for flood victims on Friday as a new winter storm barrelled towards Britain, threatening fresh misery after the wettest start to the year for 250 years. The princes joined soldiers distributing sandbags to protect properties in the flood-hit village of Datchet, in the shadow of Queen Elizabeth II's Windsor Castle residence. The royal relief came as the Met Office said a "multi-pronged attack" of wind, rain and snow was sweeping across the country after making landfall in southwest England.
