Waters receding at New Road
Sussex 255 v Worcestershire 14-2 - lunch
While they're at lunch at Chester Road, Kidderminster, on the second day of Worcestershire's rescheduled game with Sussex, things are now looking a little brighter 15 miles away back at county headquarters, at New Road.
It has stopped raining, the River Severn has now reached its peak, the waters are starting to recede and the clean-up operation has begun in parts of the ground.
On past experience, it usually takes three weeks to get the place ready for cricket again after a New Road flood, which would wipe out next week's one-day game against Australia A, on 25 June.
But the next home game after that, the Championship fixture against Derbyshire on 7 July, at least looks a reasonable target.
The club are yet to comment on how long they expect to be at Kidderminster this time.
Showers will pep up this evening with the risk of a thundery
downpour here and there.
They will be fairly hit and miss and they will ease up
for a time overnight.
It will remain cloudy, damp and humid overnight with lows
The rain has the potential to pep up again through tomorrow morning bringing the risk of a thundery downpour again.
They will again be hit and miss but with the ground already saturated from last week’s rain, the Met Office is warning of the potential of very localised flooding. The rain will clear away by late afternoon giving a dry and perhaps bright end to the day.
Watch: Today's weather for the East Midlands
A bright start to the day but cloud should increase later with rain arriving from the south and the chance of thunderstorms.
Ambulance crews battled to save man who fell into lake
Police say the man who died after falling into Windermere earlier this week was 57 and from Heversham, near Milnthorpe.
Emergency services were called to Glebe Road, one of the busiest tourist areas in the Lake District, just before 13:00 on Wednesday, and medical staff from the ambulance and air ambulance tried in vain to save the man's life.
Police say the coroner has been informed, and they have no reason to be suspicious about the man's death.
Weather: More rain on the way
The end of the very wet weather is in sight - but not before more rain today.
The forecast? You guessed it, more rain - although it might be a bit drier for a short spell early tomorrow morning.
East Midlands Airport charges U-turn: No refunds
BBC News Online
East Midlands Airport will not be offering refunds to those who paid for their rapid drop off, despite admitting there had been problems since they raised the prices.
Responding to a question from the BBC, a spokesman said: "We
are not refunding passengers who have used rapid drop off.
"We offer a full range of free and paid for parking options so that passengers have a choice.
"These include one hour’s free parking in Long Stay 2, free 30 minutes parking for disabled passengers, £4 for 30 minutes in short stay as well as rapid drop off next to the main entrance."
East Midlands Airport charges U-turn: Your reaction
"Thanks goodness for common sense" was the almost unanimous response to the news that East Midlands Airport is scrapping its controversial new rapid drop off parking charges.
The airport announced this afternoon it will go back to the old charges of £2 for 10 minutes parking in the rapid drop off, which was briefly raised to £2 for five minutes (with £1 for every minute over) earlier this month.
Bosses said they had done it to improve traffic flow but admitted drivers were being charged just waiting to leave, with customers complaining of gridlock and "total chaos" at the exits.
Carol Whyke wrote: "I should think so too. Maddy Ward added it was "still too much - but a step in the right direction."
But Martyn Webster and a number of others are unhappy with the lower price, with some saying they should not have to pay just to drop people off. "Still a complete and utter ripoff," he wrote.
BreakingAirport parking charges U-turn
BBC News Online
East Midlands Airport has decided to scrap its new higher parking charges for the rapid drop off zone after scenes of "total chaos" at the barriers.
Tyler-Smith, from the airport, insisted the change - which saw the time drivers could stay for £2 drop from 10 minutes to five - had been done "with the best intentions".
There was a further £1 charge for every minute over.
Mr Tyler-Smith claimed it was to improve traffic flow but customers had reported gridlock since it was introduced earlier this month - meaning drivers' charges kept rising as they queued to leave.
He admitted this had been a problem at peak times.
The airport has announced it's returning to its normal charges.
