LONDON (AP) - U.K. leader David Cameron says that money is no object in the fight against the mass flooding that has hit parts of England and that he is canceling his visit to the Middle East to oversee the effort.

Cameron told journalists Tuesday that "whatever money is needed for this relief effort will be spent" as Britain deals with some of its wettest weather in 250 years.

He also says a planned to trip to Israel in mid-February would be canceled.

England had its wettest January since 1766 and its southwest coast has been battered repeatedly by storms.

Some areas have been under water for more than a month. The River Thames burst its banks, flooding riverside towns upstream of London.
