The threat of flooding in parts of Yorkshire has eased but the Environment Agency said it would continue to monitor river levels.

The Met Office has forecast further rainfall across the region over the next week.

Flood warnings remain in place on the rivers Ouse, Derwent and Hull in East and North Yorkshire.

The Environment Agency said river levels were likely to remain high over the next week.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said it had received several calls out to people in cars stuck in flood water over the Christmas period.

A spokesperson for the service warned motorists to take extreme care when driving through flood water and to avoid it.

Almost 20 minor roads in North Yorkshire remain closed due to flooding.
