Flood watch continues on Severn
A flood watch remains in place for the River Severn in Shropshire - but water levels threatening part of Shrewsbury town centre have peaked.

The Frankwell car park has reopened after the river peaked at 3.2m on Saturday, a council spokesman said.

Flood watches have been lifted for the Upper Teme, River Onny and River Corve at Ludlow but remain in place on the Severn throughout Shropshire.

Flood barriers were on standby in several towns along the Severn.

Three football matches involving Shropshire teams were cancelled on Saturday because of the wet weather.
