East Yorkshire flood warning for River Derwent

A flood warning is in place for a stretch of the River Derwent in East Yorkshire.

The Environment Agency said that levels at Buttercrambe and Stamford Bridge remained high and they were monitoring the situation.

The agency also said properties at Kexby Bridge were also at risk.

On Tuesday, heavy downpours across England resulted in homes being evacuated, disruption to train services and school closures.

John Skidmore, of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said the authority had put pumps in Stamford Bridge to remove the water.

He said: "The pumping operation we expect to continue for at least one to two days until river levels reduce."

Mr Skidmore said that one road in the town had been closed due to flooding.
