Heavy downpours in Gloucestershire have caused a building's roof to collapse and flooded a school forcing it to close early.

The roof of the Tesco store on London Road, Gloucester collapsed and a cafe in the town also had water pouring through its ceiling.

Gardners Lane Children Centre in Cheltenham and Longlevens Infant School in Gloucester closed early.

Motorists are being warned of localised flooding on roads in the county.
