A flood alert on the River Lugg has been upgraded to a Flood Warning, with levels continuing to rise between Leominster and Hereford.

Flooding is affecting areas such as Bodenham and Sutton St Nicholas, with further heavy rain predicted overnight.

An update from the Environment Agency this afternoon said:

“Flooding is expected in this area. This means properties are at risk of flooding. Please take action to protect yourself and your property and monitor local weather and river conditions. 

“Avoid contact with, walking or driving through flood water. Consider activating any property flood protection products you may have. The Environment Agency Flood Warning System has issued this message based on rising river or tidal levels. 

“We are temporarily automating our messages due to industrial action.”
