Several flood warnings remain in place for the River Severn in Shropshire although some water levels have peaked, the Environment Agency has said.

Some warnings for Shrewsbury and the Severn Vyrnwy confluence have been removed as levels begin to fall.

Barriers are up in Ironbridge to protect homes although the river peaked during Tuesday afternoon.

The surge will continue to Bridgnorth where levels are expected to peak during the evening.

Several roads in Shrewsbury remain closed due to the flood threat.

Frankwell Main, Frankwell Riverside and St Julians Friars car parks in Shrewsbury are closed but Theatre Severn is open, Shropshire Council said.

Severnside South car park and footpaths along Well Meadow are closed in Bridgnorth.
