Tewkesbury prepares for yet more rain

Tomorrow many parts of our region will be hit by heavy rain. That news will be very unwelcome for people living in and around Tewkesbury.

Low lying land around it is famous for flooding and one pub is bracing itself for being flooded for the seventh time in twelve months.

The Environment Agency says that they can't yet accurately predict how serious the floods will be. The River Severn has been swollen by meltwater from Shropshire and Wales, but more rain is expected over the next couple of days which could make things worse.

At the moment the area around Tewkesbury is on a flood warning.

At present we are not anticipating the flood levels we saw over Christmas, but we have got a bit of rain coming this week so levels could increase.
