Water levels have peaked on a stretch of the River Derwent in East Yorkshire, the Environment Agency has said.

It is monitoring the situation as flood warnings remain in place at Buttercrambe and Stamford Bridge.

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

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

Flood water at a caravan park in Stamford Bridge 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."

Earlier, a spokeswoman for the agency said it was working in the Stamford Bridge area pumping excess water.

She added water levels were expected to fall later.
