FLOODS have receded in Herefordshire, but there are still areas affected by last week's downpours.

There are now no flood warnings in force for the county, though alerts are still in effect for the river Lugg south of Leominster and the river Wye from Hay-on-Wye to Ross-on-Wye. Other places that may be affected include the A438, Byford, Bredwardine and Hereford. 

A flood alert means flooding is possible and people should be prepared.

The weather is forecast to be cold but dry for the beginning of the week.

Herefordshire Council/Balfour Beatty Living Places say all roads in north Herefordshire that were closed due to flooding have now reopened, including at Lentwardine, where the A4113 and the A4110 are passable again.

The C1120 Bodenham and C1120 Moreton-on-Lugg were still reportedly closed yesterday (Sunday).

The B4234 at Kerne Bridge has reopened today. The delay in lifting the closure was because the council had concerns more rocks may fall.
