Gloucestershire Council acts to protect vulnerable affected by floods

The council has set up a contact centre for people with urgent needs and said its staff had been working around the clock to provide care services to the most vulnerable people.

It said that the River Severn’s levels had risen overnight and were expected to continue to rise during the day.

Some people have had to be evacuated from their homes and the area has been put on a severe flood warning by the Environment Agency.
