Water levels on the rivers Severn and Avon remain high as the Environment Agency warns of a risk of flooding over the next three days.

Seven flood warnings are in place on the two rivers in Worcestershire as stormy weather continues.

The fire service said it rescued two people from a car which had become stranded in flood water in Wyre Piddle.

The Highways Agency said floods had caused delays on the A449 in Ledbury but the road was "passable with care".

The four flood warnings on the Severn are in south Worcester, Hanley Road in Upton upon Severn, Hanley Castle and Saxons Lode, and Kempsey and Callow End.

Warnings on the Avon are at Evesham, Strensham and Bredon and at Wyre Piddle.

Dave Throup from the Environment Agency said: "It was looking like an improvement in the weather in the middle of the week but now we're looking at Wednesday when there could be another heavy downpour.

"It doesn't take much to kick the rivers back up again but the models at the moment show there aren't too many alarming rises. We just need to keep a close eye on it."
