Much of England and Wales is braced for flooding today as further heavy rain continues to wreak havoc across the country.
Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire, which was devastated by flooding in July 2007, was on alert with the Environment Agency setting up an incident room there along with two others in the Midlands and another in the Wessex area.
The agency warned of localised flooding across parts of southern and eastern England, the Midlands and Wales, with a total of 31 flood warnings and 173 flood alerts in place on its website today.
A spokeswoman said:
"We're continuing to closely monitor the forecast and rainfall particularly in areas along the rivers Severn, Teme and Avon, including Worcestershire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire."
As flood waters start to recede forecasters warn the recent deluges could be followed by unseasonable frost and sub-zero temperatures.
Parts of England and Wales are facing fresh floods after heavy rain lashed southern Britain. It follows the wettest April on record.
Parts of England and Wales were braced for more heavy rain and potential flooding after three days of storms left one person dead.
