Stanford Bridge flood warning downgraded by agency

A flood warning issued for the River Teme at Stanford Bridge in Worcestershire has been downgraded.

The Environment Agency said earlier, the warning was issued after overnight rain caused water levels to rise quickly.

Although warnings were also downgraded in Upton-upon-Severn, New Street remained closed because of flooding.

Jubilee Bridge in Fladbury and the B4088 at Eckington Bridge have reopened, the county council said.

Flood alerts are still in place on the River Severn in Worcestershire, as well as parts of the rivers Lugg, Avon and Wye.
