Kyre Brook - No Flooding

There was a strong flow on the Kyre Brook tonight after persistent rain all day saw 12mm rain fall in Tenbury.  Heavier rainfall towards Bromyard has caused extensive run-off and the Kyre Brook has been steadily rising all day.  This video was shot at about 9.30pm at the stepping stones.  So far the Environment Agency are not predicting floods in the Tenbury area, but heavy rain fall in parts of Shropshire & Mid Wales may increase river levels in the days to come.
