Flood warnings issued for parts of the UK

There is a risk of localised flooding on Sunday and Monday across parts of southern and eastern England, Midlands and Wales.

The Environment Agency is closely monitoring the forecast and rainfall particularly in Worcestershire, as the river levels are already higher than normal in the rivers Severn, Teme and Avon.

Environment Agency officers are out monitoring river levels, checking defences and clearing any potential blockages, such as fallen branches and debris, to reduce the risk of flooding.
