THE Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain and strong winds which could cause travel disruption and flooding.

The warning is in place from 10 am tomorrow (November 24) to 7 pm in the evening and covers Kidderminster, Stourport and Bewdley. 

Forecasters have said spray and flooding on roads is likely which will make journey times longer and there may be some delay to rail travel.

A flood alert has also been in place for the River Stour in Worcestershire due to rising water levels.

The alert states: “River levels have risen at the Puxton river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall.

"Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible today (November 23). 

"We expect flooding to affect low-lying land and roads adjacent to the river from Caunsall to Stourport.

"Other locations that may be affected include Wolverley and Cookley, Blakedown and Kidderminster. Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point.

"Further rainfall is forecast over the next 48 hours.

"We expect river levels to remain high in the coming days. We are closely monitoring the situation.

"Our incident response staff are checking defences and liaising with emergency services.

"Please plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and call 999 if in immediate danger."
