The Environment Agency has said that river levels on the River Severn should peak tonight.
The river, which has been swelling since Saturday, meant flood defences were put in place last night in Bewdley, Worcestershire.
Chris Bainger from the Environment Agency explains why despite normal rainfall, precautions were put in place.
