A SEARCH and rescue helicopter from RAF Wattisham was deployed to Sheffield in Yorkshire after severe rainfall left two dead and dozens more stranded.

Conditions were so bad last night that a 68-year-old man was swept to his death while another body, believed to be that of a missing 13-year-old boy, has also been found.

Three people were rescued by helicopter from a building in the city after they were stranded on the second floor of a factory.
