A number of roads have reopened as the flood waters which have ravaged the region start to recede.

The A44 through Worcester city centre - including the main bridge over the River Severn - has now opened, along with the A443 at Lindridge and the A4110 and A4113 in Leintwardine, Herefordshire.

However, a number of closures are still in force - including Upton Bridge. Worcestershire County Council has warned a number of drivers have been spotted risking getting stranded by ignoring the 'road closed' signs on the bridge.

A military shuttle service over the bridge is still in place.

The full list of closures is as follows:
