A set of flood barriers have been taken down in Worcestershire as water levels begin to fall.

Dave Throup, of the Environment Agency, said some barriers at Severnside South in Bewdley had been removed.

The defences had been in place since 28 January due to snow and heavy rain. Five flood warnings remain in place for the River Severn in the county.

These include two in the Upton-upon-Severn area, at Hanley Road and Rectory Road.

River levels at Worcester were expected to drop slowly over the next few days, the Environment Agency said.
