Flood warnings for River Sow in Staffordshire are lifted

Flood warnings in parts of Staffordshire have now been lifted, the Environment Agency has confirmed.

Warnings were in place on the River Sow in the St Thomas and Tixall areas. River levels had peaked there and were expected to fall through Wednesday.

The B5066 Sandon Road reopened after earlier flooding between Fonthil Road and Astonfields Road.

About 10 roads in the county were affected on Tuesday, although most have since been reopened, police said.
