Three flood warnings remain in place this morning after heavy rain swept the UK yesterday.
The Environment Agency said flooding was expected along certain waterways in the West Midlands and the North West.
Warnings were in place for Lyme Brook at Newcastle under Lyme and Trent Vale; the River Spodden at Whitworth in Lancashire; and Gore and Platt Brooks from Birchfield Park to Platt Fields near Manchester.
More than 20mm of rain fell at Newcastle under Lyme in just 12 hours, the Agency said, with more expected. Immediate action was advised.
Eight flood alerts – where flooding is deemed to be possible – were also in place this morning, mainly in the west of the country but also in Surrey.
Areas east of London were hit by surface flooding after heavy rains yesterday.
Environment Agency national duty flood manager Nick Hopwood said: “If you’re driving away or back from your summer holidays, as always, please remember not to drive through flood water.
“People are urged to check their flood risk on our website, especially if you’re holidaying in an area where you’re not familiar with the flood risk.
“We are monitoring the situation closely and supporting local authorities who will respond to any reports of surface water flooding. Our teams are out on the ground working hard, clearing trash screens and blockages in watercourses and culverts.”
