Several roads in the county were under water or closed this morning, with communities including Shrewsbury, Ironbridge and Bridgnorth all affected.

The Environment Agency had earlier warned that flooding could be as bad as 2020 when severe weather warnings were issued for Ironbridge and Shrewsbury after three weeks of downpours.

A spokesperson for the agency said: "Further rainfall is forecast and we expect river levels to remain high for the next few days.

"We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences and liaising with local authorities.

"Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and be prepared to activate any property flood protection products you may have, such as flood barriers and air brick covers."

With river levels due to hit their latest, and highest peak, of the winter so far, and a number of roads closed and flood warnings in place, here are the developments from throughout today.
