  6. Behind the scenes at floods control room

    Here's a peak behind the scenes in the control room at Evesham's fire station, where the emergency services and the Environment Agency are planning their response to the flooding... fuelled by biscuits donated by a local supermarket.

    As well as rescues, monitoring river levels and putting up flood defences, they've been talking to people in affected homes and businesses - and the police and fire service have been out to visit some of those most vulnerable.

    At the end of yesterday, Dave Throup from the Environment Agency tweeted "What a day!"

  7. Roads and footpaths will remain 'dangerous'

    Although flood levels are expected to fall over the next 24 hours we're being warned that roads and footpaths will remain dangerous.

    The Environment Agency said roads would be dangerous because of mud and gravel left behind and footpaths near rivers will be slippery, even when the water has gone.


    Homes and businesses that have been flooded could be contaminated by oil, silt and sewage and the Environment Agency has advice on how to safely clean up afterwards.

  8. Floodwater being washed into homes

    The old bridge in Clun is closed, because of the high river levels, but people have been moving the signs and vehicles are still driving over it.

    People living nearby have complained that means floodwater is being washed into their homes.
