Worcestershire County Council have released the latest information on the road closures today.

Carrington Bridge, Worcester is now open in both directions now.

Upton Bridge and Marina Road, Upton are now fully open.

New Road, Worcester is now open to traffic in both directions. It is fully open to pedestrians and cyclists and the shuttle bus has stopped running.

The A456 in Tenbury is also now open.

A spokesperson for the council said: "The Leader of the Council, Councillor Simon Geraghty and the Chief Executive Paul Robinson are fully involved in the flooding situation that is affecting the County. They have authorised the use of County Council resources to be used to assist the multi-agency response. Residents can be assured that teams from the County Council are working on the ground to deal with highways issues and are providing support to other services where required."

Areas of Worcestershire continue to experience flooding with many roads closed across the county. Although in some areas river levels are dropping, they are set to rise again over the next few hours, peaking during the evening.

Major incidents have been declared in both counties.

Flood barriers are in place throughout the region and more may be erected later today as necessary.

Please avoid all unnecessary travel. Updates will continue on our live blog.
