Areas of the UK are in “uncharted territory” after record levels of flooding - with more heavy rain forecast for later in the week.

Eight severe flood warnings, indicating a danger to life, were in place on Tuesday morning (February 18) across England and Wales in the wake of Storm Dennis.

Shrewsbury town centre in Shropshire is cut off by road due to flooding after the River Severn reached its highest level there in 20 years.

Communities across the country are counting the cost of the weekend’s storm, which has left hundreds of homes flooded, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has faced criticism for not visiting affected areas.

The River Wye reached its highest levels on record on Monday, peaking at more than six metres, with the Environment Agency (EA) describing levels as “exceptional” and residents in Hereford saying they had "never seen anything like it".

Dave Throup the Environment Agency manager for Herefordshire and Worcestershire said the level of flooding is difficult to believe.

Mr Throup, who is from Worcestershire, tweeted on Monday evening: "I’ve seen things today I would not have believed. Large parts of my home town and village are underwater tonight.

"This is not normal flooding, we are in uncharted territory."

West Mercia Police advised people in Upton-upon-Severn and Uckinghall in Worcestershire to evacuate on Monday evening due to rising levels on the River Severn.

Assistant Chief Constable Geoff Wessell said there was a “level of relief” for Upton-upon-Severn on Tuesday morning as flood defences appeared not to have been breached.

People were being evacuated from their homes in Telford on Tuesday morning as water pressure from the River Severn caused the road surface to crack.

Residents of the Wharfage, located along the river, were being taken to a cafe on the High Street in Ironbridge, while 21 cars parked in the area were brought to a nearby park and ride to save them from flooding, Telford and Wrekin Council said.

The council said the river’s flood peak was moving towards the Ironbridge Gorge and was expected to arrive there later on Tuesday.

The family of Yvonne Booth, who was swept away by floodwater near Tenbury in Worcestershire on Sunday, said they had been left "devastated" after her body was found on Monday.

The 55-year-old, from the Great Barr area of Birmingham, was described as a "very much loved member of our family" in  a statement from relatives, released through police.

The Environment Agency has issued severe flood warnings for the River Severn at Upton upon Severn and Uckinghall, the River Wye at Hereford and Hampton Bishop, the River Trent at Burton upon Trent and the River Lugg at Hampton Bishop.

In Wales, there are two severe warnings in place on the River Wye at Monmouth in what Natural Resources Wales called both “defended” and “undefended” areas.

Homes in Monmouth were evacuated as the organisation warned the river was expected to peak at 7.2 metres by Tuesday morning.

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has resisted calls to chair a meeting of the government’s emergency committee Cobra to tackle the flooding crisis, despite criticism from Labour.

Shadow environment secretary Luke Pollard said it was a “disgrace” that Mr Johnson had “refused” to visit affected communities.

Around 1,000 staff were on duty, with three miles (5km) of flood barriers deployed and 90 pumps in action, the Environment Agency said.

It warned the flood risk continues, with further heavy rain forecast in the north of England for Wednesday and Thursday, possibly falling on already flooded areas.

Met Office meteorologist Marco Petagna said Tuesday will bring a brief respite from the worst of the weather for most of the UK, with sunny spells and showers, but warned areas of Wales could see downpours.

“With the ground being so saturated, it’s not going to help the situation,” he said.

“And there’s more persistent rain coming on Wednesday. There will be wet and windy weather across the UK on Wednesday and Thursday, with the heavy rain coming back.”

The Met Office has issued two yellow weather warnings for snow and ice over parts of Scotland, with further warnings of persistent rain in Wales for Wednesday and Thursday, which could be extended to the north west of England.
