The footage, published on Twitter on Saturday, features a sped-up walk past the temporary flood barriers along Ironbridge Wharf.

In total, the time-lapse covers half a kilometre of defences, according to Chris Bainger who posted the video.

Chris is an Environment Agency Fisheries Technical Specialist for Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.

His 21-second video shows how impressive the work being done by various authorities to reduce flooding is. You can watch it below:

On Monday morning, some flood warnings remained in place in Shropshire, even as water levels eased off a bit.

In Ironbridge, Telford & Wrekin Council were preparing to start phase two of dismantling the flood barriers after starting the clean-up operation on Sunday.
