Flooding in Ironbridge, UK

UK Police have warned that people living along the River Severn could face another 10 days of flooding misery with more rain showers predicted to sweep across affected areas.

Environment Agency officials and engineers were continuing to monitor a barrier at Ironbridge in Shropshire on Thursday after the weight of water caused it to buckle, prompting an emergency evacuation.

Severe flood warnings – meaning there is a danger to life – remain in place at Ironbridge. The agency said it was possible that the depth of flood water at the Wharfage in Ironbridge could reach 1.8m.
