More of the Midlands has been further affected by floods. As heavy rain falls on already saturated ground- and more is forecast to come- we take a look at some of the worst hit parts of our region.

Bus services are unable to serve stops in Nottingham, including the intu Victoria Shopping Centre, due to flooding as heavy rainfall batters the area.

Flooding has been reported by authorities in Shakespeare Street, Noel Street, close to the Forest Recreation Ground, and at the Wilkinson Street tram depot on Thursday afternoon (November 14).

Carlton in Nottinghamshire has also experienced drastic flooding. River levels have been rising on the Trent and residents in Newark and Sherwood have also been urged to remain vigilant.

Shipston on Stour is now partially part of the river behind it, thanks to the heavy rainfall. Their local flood action group has done work over the past couple of years which is says has successfully lowered the water levels - but there's still more to be done.

And Shipston isn't the only part of Warwickshire suffering from the wet weather- There was plenty of water in the village of Barton this morning - and the number of flood warnings - and flood alerts - in the county went up throughout the day.

Across the border in Worcestershire it was just as bad, with the water grounding traffic and closing schools.

Gedling was another area hit hard by the rainfall. The Police encouraged people to find alternative routes as the water made it impossible to pass between Lambley and Lowdham.

And it's not good news for farmers. In Worcestershire, crops have been decimated and fields have been turned into lakes. Farmers say it will be spring time before fields will properly dry out and they are able to grow more crops.

Water levels also remain extremely high in Breaston in Derbyshire.

Abbey Park Golf Course in Redditch was also hit hard by flood water, with its bridge completely underwater and swans taking to the field.
