A flood warning remains in place for a stretch of the River Derwent in East Yorkshire.

The Environment Agency said it would continue to monitor the water levels at Buttercrambe and Stamford Bridge, which currently "remain high".

The agency said properties at Kexby Bridge were also at risk of flooding.

On Tuesday, heavy downpours across England resulted in homes being evacuated, disruption to train services and school closures.

Water levels at Stamford Bridge had peaked on Thursday.

Flood water at a caravan park in the village had reached "halfway up your wellies" in places, the owner said.

David Hind, co-owner of the Weir Caravan Park, said: "We've had to put people off coming [to the park] this weekend, which obviously has a detrimental effect on business and it hasn't been the best of summers anyway."

A spokeswoman for the agency said it had been working in the Stamford Bridge area pumping excess water.
