FLOOD warnings and alerts are in place across north Shropshire this evening (Tuesday, January 10).

With the Met Office announcing a second yellow warning of rain over Wednesday and Thursday, and with river levels rising, the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales have put out warning and alerts.

One of the most affected parts in the Whitchurch area is the River Dee catchment which runs from Whitchurch to Chester, with the river levels expected to remain high.

There is also an alert from the Environment Agency concerning the Tern and Perry catchments and the Severn Vyrnwy confluence, and they are asking people to: "Start acting on their flood plan if they have one."


They are also urging people to "monitor local water levels and weather conditions" as well as to "avoid using low lying footpaths or entering areas prone to flooding".

Natural Resources Wales also warn people of other areas affected, such as River Dee from Llangollen to Trevalyn Meadows and River Dee at Bangor on Dee.
