Four flood warnings were issued along the River Severn in Worcestershire on Saturday after further rain overnight.

The Environment Agency (EA) said flooding was still possible around Upton-upon-Severn, Clifton, Severn Stoke, Callow End and Kempsey.

It said river levels were continuing to fall, according to measurements at its gauges on Saturday.

In the village of Broadway, residents remain without safe drinking water after more than a week.

Villagers were told to boil their water on 23 November after reports of discolouration.

Severn Trent is also giving out bottles of water.
