HERE are some of the best photos as flooding hit Worcester over the past week.

Flooding has been seen across the city, from Swans outside Brown’s at the Quay to Blackfinch New Road being completely submerged.

The flooding at the cricket ground meant that Worcestershire’s next County Championship, against Sussex, which begins on Tuesday, has been moved to Kidderminster Cricket Club.

After the game was moved, club chairman Matt Rawnsley said: “This is not an ideal situation and we would always prefer to play at Blackfinch New Road, however the change of venue gives us the best chance of playing Tuesday’s fixture.

“Kidderminster Cricket Club has hosted many first class fixtures over the years and we are extremely grateful for their assistance at such short notice.

“We would also like to thank the ECB and Sussex County Cricket Club for their cooperation.”

The County’s next home game, on June 25, is hoped to be at New Road against Australia A.

Worcester News readers captured photos of the floodwater, with Paul Savage sending his drone into the sky to take stunning aerial shots of the cricket ground and the racecourse underwater.

Dawn Marie snapped an island of tree branches and other debris washed down the river and gathering underneath Worcester Bridge.

Amy Ferneyhough sent in a view of Worcester Cathedral across the swollen River Severn and Mark Gillett showed us the scenes at South Quay, where the river burst its banks.

Thankfully, Worcester appears to have a much better weather forecast this week, remaining mainly dry with some light showers across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The weekend should see the sun come out and temperatures rise to 20 degrees.

Elsewhere in the county, Malvern looks to have a dry forecast this week, with Evesham and Ledbury also looking at drier and warmer weeks.
