Emergency evacuations from flood-hit Ironbridge
An emergency evacuation took place as rising waters on the River Severn "overwhelmed" a town's flood defences.
Buckled barriers at Ironbridge, Shropshire, meant water seeped underneath, resulting in police evacuating part of the town.
West Mercia Police, which oversaw the evacuation, said "virtually everyone" in the Wharfage area had agreed to leave.
