A flood gate in Worcestershire has been closed as heavy rain hits the region tonight.

The Environment Agency has taken the precaution in New Street in Upton on Severn in the wake of storm Eleanor that's sweeping its way across the country.

Experts say river levels are already increasing and will rise steadily until Friday. They're urging people to be prepared.
