Flood warnings in place for River Wye in Herefordshire
THE Environment Agency has issued flood warnings for the River Wye after heavy rain battered the county yesterday.
Dave Throup, spokesman for the Environment Agency, said that the river is currently peaking in Bredwardine and is expected to peak elsewhere in the county later today.
However, the Environment Agency has said that it has no plans to deploy the flood barriers in Hereford.
The rain yesterday caused severe disruption on the trains, with services from Newport to Hereford having to be cancelled.
Flooding at Ledbury also saw services affected from Great Malvern to Hereford.
On the roads, the A438 is reportedly closed at Letton, as is Watery Lane in Yarkhill, while Bullingham Lane in Hereford sustained a lot of flood water.
The Hampton Bishop road is also causing problems, but is passable with care.
However, a car has reportedly been left stranded in a ditch.
Firefighters had to rescue a woman from a car that got stuck in flooded water near Pontrilas shortly before 12.20pm, while a crew also attended a road traffic collision and flooded roadway in West Street, Pembridge, just after 4.20am.
