Views
Flooded Venice has been hit by a new high tide of 5ft, giving residents no respite from a crisis costing Italy millions of Euros.

World-famous St Mark's Square, a magnet for tourists, has been closed, and schools are shut for a third day.

The canal city's famous waterbuses - the vaporetti - are not running.

The 6 feet peak on Tuesday was the highest level in more than 50 years, damaging monuments, shops and homes.

More than 80% of the city was flooded.

The government declared a state of emergency in the UNESCO world heritage site.
