An alert has also been issued for the River Isbourne, Badsey Brook, Honeybourne Brook, Bretforton Brook and Littleton Brook and its tributaries.

The Environment Agency's manager for Worcestershire Dave Throup tweeted: "I can confirm driving conditions in #worcestershire are appalling. Huge amounts of surface water. Please take extreme care."
