Flood alerts are in place for parts of Herefordshire as rain continues to fall on the county.

The Environment Agency says flooding is possible in areas around the river Frome and river Leadon.

Flooding is affecting low lying land and roads next to the Leadon from 3am tomorrow (Thursday).

Places that may be affected include Ledbury, Much Marcle, Staunton and Tibberton.

A brook has burst its banks at Upleadon Court, near Ledbury.

Flooding of roads and low lying land along the river Frome from Bromyard to Hereford is expected from 4am tomorrow.

Bishops Frome and Yarkhill may also be affected.

Further rainfall is forecast over the next 12 hours. The Frome is expected to remain high until Thursday evening, the Leadon until Saturday.

In the meantime avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses.

Elsewhere, all 220 miles of the river Severn are now on flood alert.

Dave Throup, Environment Agency manager for Herefordshire and Worcestershire, said the levels were "similar to 'normal'  winter flooding... in the middle of June!"

The Met Office is forecasting more rain for Herefordshire tonight and throughout tomorrow morning, turning to sun and showers in the afternoon.

Severe weather warnings are in place for the South East and central and east Midlands.
