Hereford & Worcester Fire Service and West Mercia Police have been busy tonight rescuing a vehicle from flood water in Staplow, near Ledbury. A decision has been made to close Hollow Lane until the flood water recedes.

Torrential downpours in the area have caused flash flooding on many routes but despite the rainfall many routes are now passable.

There is some good news however. Sunny spells are expected over the weekend with showers few and far between. Temperatures are expected to rise into the low to mid 20’s.
