This is a nice change. The Met Office weather map has been covered in dark blue rain clouds for days. Now they're down to just a few dots here and there.

Andrew Brown: I  have noticed that the walkway along the river on the west side in Worcester is exposed as depicted. The water is deep, cold and any unwitting cyclist, child, or intoxicated/blind/semi-sighted person could easily end up in serious difficulties if they fell here. There isn't any excuse for the council  to have left this so exposed.

Worcester News: The ramp has now been cordoned off.

Let's hope that the floodwater now starts to recede and that the people who have been affected can get back to normal as soon as possible.
I had thought that some really positive steps were going to be taken when I started to read the "great news" announcement from the MP for Malvern. I hadn't realised that this was going to be that another MP was going to visit Upton-on-Severn. I'm not convinced that others will share Ms Baldwin's definition of "great".
