BOTH the C2022 Jubilee Bridge at Fladbury and the B4088 Eckington Bridge, both near Pershore, are now closed due to flooding.

They had been re-opened earlier this morning, but were then closed again.

New Street, Upton-upon-Severn, is closed beyond the flood gate.

The Environment Agency has flood warnings in place on the River Avon in areas including Bredon, Wyre Piddle, Strensham and Twyning.

However, water levels were expected to have peaked last night.

Environment Agency area manager Dave Throup is hoping better weather will ease the situation.

He tweeted: “Dry week ahead which should steady things a bit”.

The following bus services are currently disrupted due to flooding:

382 (Worcester – Norton – Defford – Eckington – Pershore): This service is currently operating on its Standard Flood Timetable.

550 / 551 (Worcester – Pershore – Evesham): This service is currently operating on its Standard Flood Timetable.
