Evesham homes at risk of flooding

Parts of Evesham suffered a fourth consecutive day of flooding on Monday as the Environment Agency warned of possible damage to low-lying roads and homes along the River Avon.

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said it had received 80 flood-related calls over the weekend.

The majority of the calls were from Evesham, Hereford, Ross on Wye and Worcester, which have been particularly affected by flooding.

Two schools in Evesham were also closed on Monday, due to flooding.

The Environment Agency said river levels had peaked and were expected to fall, with only light rain forecasted for the rest of the day.
