DRIVERS across north Shropshire and Cheshire are facing travel disruption today following flooding across the region.

Heavy rain throughout all of Tuesday has rendered several roads near impassible for road traffic.

The A525 towards Nantwich, the A41 near Bolesworth and Grange Lane in Tilston have all been subject to flooding and drivers are advised to exercise caution.

The Met Office has put a yellow weather warning for rain in place across much of the region - including Shropshire, Cheshire and much of north Wales.

According to the Met Office, this means there could be some flooding and delays to public transport.

A spokesman said: "There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.

"Where flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.

"Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

"There is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads."

The weather warning is in place until 12noon on Thursday.

A range of advice is available on the Met Office website, including travelling in storms, rain and heavy wind as well as what do do in a flood.

The Environment Agency has also issued a flood warning for the River Dee catchment area.
The warning extends from Chester to Whitchurch, but at Farndon especially.
It is thought that flooding could manifest itself until this evening.
A spokesperson said: "River levels are rising at the Farndon river gauge as a result of persistent heavy rainfall. 
"Consequently, flooding of low lying land, roads and farmland is possible from 2am tomorrow morning through to tomorrow evening. 
"We believe there is a possibility of flooding for low lying land and roads around the River Dee at Shocklach, Farndon, Handley, Lower Kinnerton, Chester and Cuddington. 
"Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high for the coming days. 
"We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are closely monitoring weather forecasts and river levels and will issue (further) flood alerts if necessary.

North Wales Police said on Twitter: "Weather and road conditions are atrocious.

"Please slow down wherever you may be going. Assess the need for your journey, drive to the conditions and your driving ability.

"Please do not ignore any road closure signs. Think Safety."
