  • "Those making sarcastic comments are clearly oblivious, or being deliberately ignorant, to the real world performances of the highways department. A department that has continually delivered mediocre services at great expense to the tax payer. A department that professes to consist of experienced and qualified staff, but in reality they are primarily incompetent and are steered by spin by the PR machines called liaison "engineers'' who are frankly a joke. And a department that continually displays errors of judgement which leads to ill conceived and designed white elephant schemes, often leading to the road network becoming less safe."

9am update: heavy rain warning for Worcestershire

DOWNPOUR: Expect rain tonight

DOWNPOUR: Expect rain tonight

First published in Ledbury

WORCESTERSHIRE is braced for more rain today, with the wet and unsettled weather set to continue into the weekend.

With further rain forecast to fall on already-saturated ground, the Environment Agency has said the county faces a low risk of possible flooding along the river Severn, which is still high after recent rain.

There may also be problems with surface flooding on roads.

A flood alert has been issued for Barbourne Brook, Worcester.

The agency is warning of potential significant disruption across the West Midlands as bands of rain move across England and Wales until the end of the week.

It said: "The following areas could be affected by flooding: low lying areas of farmland and caravan parks between Worcester and Tewkesbury, together with the low lying roads at Upton."

The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning for rain across the West Midlands after predicting heavy and prolonged periods of rain.

The warning means people should be aware of the potential for poor weather.

A total of 20-40mm of rain fell last night with rainfall totals of 15-20mm expected today and some areas receiving up to 40mm.
