HEREFORDSHIRE is recovering from the heavy winds and rain that battered the county on Wednesday and Thursday - but there could be more to come.

More rain and strong winds are predicted across the West Midlands for Saturday posing a 'risk of further disruption', according to the Met Office.

Emergency services were called to several incidents involving fallen trees and flooding across the two days, with police responding to calls across 30 different areas in Herefordshire.

South Wye police in Hereford helped clear trees that fell on Holme Lacy Road in Hereford, outside the Royal Oak Inn in Much Marcle, on the A465 near Pontrilas, the B4348 Much Dewchurch, and the A49 Peterstow.

Firefighters helped rescue a motorist from his car which was stranded in flood water along the B3461 at Luston shortly after 7pm, and both police and firefighters were called to help a number of other drivers who had become trapped in flood water.

The River Wye burst its banks earlier today near the Victoria Bridge, meaning one path is closed on the north side of the river.

The Met Office has said that weather across the West Midlands on Saturday will see a 'bright, frosty start with fog slow to clear in places. Turning cloudy, with rain, heavy at times, and strong winds arriving after midday, giving a risk of further disruption.'
