Flood warnings remain on Severn
Two flood warnings remain in place on the River Severn between the cities of Worcester and Gloucester.

However, warnings along the river in Shropshire and north Worcestershire have been downgraded to the less serious risk of flood watch.

A warning on the River Wye between Hereford and Ross was downgraded by the Environment Agency on Thursday.

The Severn peaked at 15ft (4.6m) above its normal level in Bewdley, Worcestershire earlier this week.
