The storms, which we can expect for weeks to come, are making the top headlines as thousands are evacuated from their homes. The rest of the news agenda is mixed. The Telegraph, Independent and Express have all picked up on the release of Thatcher-era papers from the National Archives, but have each given their own spin on them. Migration is also in the news, with speculation over how much the new immigrants will claim in benefits continuing apace.
