FLOOD warnings for the River Avon at Evesham, Pershore, Wyre Piddle and elsewhere in Worcestershire have been removed as water levels have fallen.

The river rose to 4.19 metres in some areas yesterday but has now dropped to non-risk levels.

However, Environment Agency flood warnings remain in place for the River Severn in areas including Diglis, Worcester Racecourse, Callow End, Clevelode, Hanley Castle, Kempsey, Severn Stoke, Uckinghall and Upton.

Due to further rain forecast tomorrow, levels are expected to remain high through Friday.
