Multiple flood alerts are still in place around Warwick following days of heavy rainfall.

The Environment Agency has alerts along the River Avon, River Leam and River Itchen.

"River levels continue to fall at the Stratford gauge following recent heavy rainfall," the Avon alert said.

"However, as levels are still elevated, the risk of flooding remains. Flood warnings are still active from this gauge.

"Flooding will still be affecting low-lying land and roads adjacent to the River Avon between Rugby and Bidford including Warwick, Stratford upon Avon, caravan parks and farmland.

"No significant further rainfall is forecast over the weekend and although river levels are falling, they still pose a flood risk.

"We are continuing to closely monitor the situation and our incident response staff will be out again clearing weed screens."

The warning at Gog Brook has now been removed.
