And a fun side...

This is what Christopher Ritson said about this video:

"This a great clip I took when I was near the river Severn in Worcester.

"By pure chance, when I called into town and saw someone about to reel in some rope using a generator/engine, it just happened to have a water skier attached to the other end. Out came the iPhone and here is the video:"

Support your local shops

As the flooding continues it is important to remember that Worcester, and other riverside towns such as Upton and Tewkesbury, as still very much open and accessible.

Local traders rely on your business, so please don't let them down by staying away.

Despite this, it is thought that rivers in the county will have peaked today.

If we could get it to freeze before the Racecourse was drained we could have an ice ring.

It will be the only way Worcester will get one whatever the endless stream of developers say in their planning applications.
