See the latest pictures from Shropshire as flooding chaos continued to consume Shropshire today, with two 'danger to life' warnings remaining in place for Shrewsbury and Ironbridge.

Barriers were forced back three meters in Ironbridge and the River Severn peaked in Shrewsbury last night as Bridgnorth braced for its own flooding.

Flood barriers moved three metres at Ironbridge last night but water did not breach them. The river is currently at 6.79m - slightly down from the peak of 6.8m last night.
