Hundreds more homes risked being swamped by floods in southeast England on Tuesday after the River Thames burst its banks and one of the country's busiest rail routes was severely disrupted.Affluent towns and villages along the Thames to the west of London have been transformed into lagoons, and the government faced more criticism of a lack of preparedness after a month of floods misery across England.He told BBC radio: "We are dealing with an enormous force of nature here, vast quantities of water, an unprecedented weather pattern, and, while the authorities can and must do everything that is possible, there are some things I'm afraid that we just can't do".Residents have complained that their vacant homes have been looted. Many houses in Wraysbury and neighbouring villages are worth over one million pounds (1.2 million euros, $1.65 million).
