Sheena Engineer, Flood Duty Manager at the Environment Agency said: “Slow moving thundery showers could lead to localised surface water flooding mainly across parts of western England on Tuesday, with the risk extending north and east into Wednesday.

“Areas where there has been recent flooding over the weekend may be more susceptible to further flooding.

“We are monitoring the situation closely and our teams are ready to respond where necessary.

“We advise people to stay away from swollen rivers and urge people not to drive through flood water as just 30cm of flowing water is enough to move your car.

“You can check your flood risk, sign up for free flood warnings and keep up to date with the latest situation at https://www.gov.uk/check-flood-risk, call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 or follow @EnvAgency on Twitter for the latest flood updates.”‎
