Flood barrier deployed on River Severn

The Environment Agency has predicted a significant rise in water levels coming down the River Severn in the next 48 hours.

It is therefore swiftly making preparations for the flood barriers to be deployed at 9pm tonight.

Police cones will be deployed on the Wharfage as soon as possible to enable the bungs to be put in the gulleys.

The Wharfage will be closed to traffic from 8pm.
