SIGNS have been removed from a key Herefordshire road that was closed due to flooding. 

The A438 Hereford to Ledbury road was shut between Tarrington and Trumpet after heavy rain flooded it yesterday (February 22).

The signs were pushed to the side this morning (February 23) with them now being removed completely. However, Herefordshire Council has not confirmed that the road has reopened. 

Another road that was closed was Watery Lane in Yarkhill, but those signs have also been pushed to the side of the road. 


The only roads the council has said have reopened are the B4203 in Bromyard, the B4214 Bromyard Road near Ledbury and the A4110 in Leintwardine. 

Yesterday, the council said both the A4110 and A4113 in Leintwardine were closed; however, there has been no confirmation that the latter has reopened.  

With the conditions much better today, there are no flood warnings in place for Herefordshire. 

However, three flood alerts are still valid. These are for the river Leadon catchment, the river Lugg south of Leominster and the river Wye. 

Looking towards the weekend, it will be cold tonight, with the potential for a light frost first thing tomorrow (February 24). Saturday is forecast to be dry all day with the occasional sunny spell; however, rain could return by Sunday (February 25).
