FLOOD alerts for the River Severn have finally been removed, but warnings are in place for more rainfall.

The Environment Agency has removed the flood warnings for the River Severn in Worcestershire.

It comes after Worcestershire was hit with heavy rainfall across the past week and a tornado warning.

A spokesperson for the Environment Agency said: "Levels have now fallen below the flood risk threshold.

"The situation is improving.

"Flood alerts and warnings may still be in force for surrounding areas.

"Rainfall is expected over the next 24 hours, we continue to monitor the situation."

However, a flood warning is still in place for the River Avon, which goes through Evesham.

The River Avon peaked on Friday at 2.49m, but the Environment Agency has warned that levels are expected to remain high for the next few days.

Low-lying land adjacent to the River from Abbotts Salford to Tewkesbury has been affected.

This includes Offenham, Evesham, Twyning and the Eckington Road.

A spokesperson for the Environment Agency added: "We expect river levels to remain high for the next few days.

"Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours.

"We expect river levels to rise in response but not higher than recent peak levels."

Flooding across the county led to some roads closing and a pub.

The Swan Hotel Pub in Upton-Upon-Severn was submerged in flood water following a pump issue along the Waterside road.

The problem at the Boat House Restaurant caused water to flood the entire pub - leaving it no choice but to close.

However, the pub soon bounced back and opened 12 hours after flooding.

A spokesperson for the pub said: "We are open 12 hours after flooding.

"Nothing stops The Swan Hotel.

"After the amazing contribution of locals, our staff and especially to Rick Bailey from Water Rescue UK and Martin Allen for the massive support given!"
