In this news film, you can watch how a Deaf woman's family escaped from the floods in the south of England.

Reita Bansal and her family live in Wraysbury near Staines. When the Thames river flooded, they were forced to leave their home by boat.

In the film, Reita tells director Ted Evans that this is not the first time her home has been flooded.

As well as the interview footage, this video features home video footage which was filmed by Reita as she left her home.

When she sent her videos to the BSL Zone, we decided to make this film to show what happened to her.
