Flood warnings following heavy rain storms

The Environment Agency is asking people across the Midlands to remain vigilant and prepared for flooding.

The fast moving heavy rain going over the region is already causing surface water flooding and could cause rivers to rise rapidly.

The Agency is putting out flood alerts and in places there may be flood warnings. The public are urged to remain vigilant and check its website, http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk, and Twitter feed for the latest updates and flood warnings and to keep up to date with met office weather warnings.
