Melting snow causes flooding
11:07am Saturday 16th January 2010 in News
Flooding across Worcestershire has been blamed on a combination of rain and melting snow.
Flooding has been reported on roads in Holt, Rhydd and Leigh Sinton, as well as in Bromyard, Callow Marsh and Ledbury in Herefordshire.
But the Enviroment Agency said they will not be putting any flood warnings out yet, as the flooding is being caused by rain and melting snow rather than rising river levels.
A spokesperson said: "These are low lying roads, which is why the water is gathering there.
"The water is a both rainfall and snow, but we are not expecting a massive impact from rain this afternoon.
"We are monitoring the situation and will keep an eye on river levels but we are not expecting it to become a problem."
The roads affected are: Both ways between B4211 and A449 Malvern Road B4424 in Rhydd, the A4103 at B4503 Leigh Sinton Road in Leigh Sinton, the A443 Witley Road between B4196 (Holt) and Greenhill Lane (Hallow) in Holt, as well as on New Street in Ledbury, B4214 Northbound between A4103 and Stoke Lane in Callow Marsh and B4214 High Street in Bromyard, between B4203 Cruxwell Street and A4112 Cross Street.
