Goodnight to you from the BBC Local Live crew

That's all from us for this Thursday evening.

We've focussed on the 10th anniversary of the floods in Gloucester today and, as Ian Fergusson says, in the years since 2007 Mother Nature has challenged us on a few occasions.

He's here with the forecast for tomorrow - there'll be some wet and windy weather, so beware.

We'll be back with you from 7am tomorrow with all the latest news, sport, weather and travel. Sleep tight.

There could be some dangerous conditions on the roads as the weekend starts.
