Flood warnings issued in Warwickshire on Monday have been downgraded by the Environment Agency.

The organisation said river levels were still running high, with a string of less serious flood alerts in place around the county.

They include alerts on the rivers Leam, Anker, Tame, Blythe, Stour and Itchen.

Rain on Sunday night and Monday led to three shops being flooded in Rugby and the River Tame bursting its banks at Water Orton and Nether Whitacre.
