FLOOD warnings remain in place in Gloucestershire. 

An alert has been issued by the Environment Agency for the River Severn at Severn Ham near Tewkesbury.

Gauge readings taken at Mythe and Upper Pound this morning at 6.30am show the river level is continuing to rise. 

The river at Mythe was measured at 3.98metres and it is expected to peak at between 4m and 4.3m tomorrow afternoon.

Meanwhile, a wider-ranging and less severe alert is in place at other locations along the Severn between Tewkesbury and Gloucester. 

The level at the Gloucester gauge was measured at 2.9m and steady last night.

Peak levels could change with further wet weather expected in the next few days. 

Meanwhile, Gloucestershire Police is warning motorists to avoid Cowcombe Hill in Chalford, near Stroud, because it is very slippery due to ice. Latest Gloucestershire weather forecast
