East Yorkshire has escaped the worst effects of the heavy rain, emergency services say.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service said the day had been "much calmer" than Sunday, when it attended a significant number of localised flooding callouts.

The Environment Agency (EA) said it was not expecting many problems but would continue to monitor the situation.

The agency said flood warnings were in place on the River Hull, the River Derwent and North Cave beck.

Simon Anfield, of Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, said: "Today we have an improved situation and river levels are dropping."

Several roads were closed due to flooding in the county but the EA said problems were mainly due to surface water.
