Severe flooding and landslips cut off rail links to large parts of southwest England for more than 24 hours at the weekend as the government came under pressure for its handling of storms battering Britain.Some areas have been underwater for over a month in the wettest January on record, with angry residents criticising the government for not doing enough to prevent flooding or reacting quickly enough to help those affected by the devastation.Environment Agency chairman Chris Smith, who received a frosty reception when he visited flood-hit areas this week, has faced calls to step down.On Sunday, the government's communities minister Eric Pickles, who took over responsibility for the flood response after the environment minister was taken ill, apologised.Speaking to the BBC during a visit to the region on Sunday, he described the government's response as "Too little, too late".
