River Severn flood warnings downgraded

Flood warnings issued for the River Severn in Worcestershire have been downgraded, the Environment Agency.

Low-lying areas of farmland and caravan parks between Worcester and Tewkesbury and low-lying roads at Upton are still at risk, the agency said.

Defences were being erected in Bewdley as water levels peaked at 4.1m Bewdley Gauge overnight on Tuesday.

Six flood warnings were issued by the agency but now, one flood alert along the river remains in place.
