Britons are being urged to take action at a high risk of flooding over the next 24 hours.

A total of 32 flood warnings and 84 flood warnings are currently in effect across England and Wales this morning.

This means that disruption to roads, homes and businesses can be expected after a weekend of wet and windy weather.

Barriers have been erected along the River Severn in Worcestershire after it burst its banks yesterday while downpours left fields submerged in Wiltshire, Carmarthenshire and Herefordshire.

The Met Office has issued two amber rain warnings for tomorrow covering parts of North West England, the West Midlands and West Wales.

Flooding of homes and businesses is ‘probable’ and transport disrupted.
