The warnings which are in place throughout today (Thursday, June 13), follow overnight rain which has kept river levels in the affected areas high.

A statement on the EA website said; "Further rain overnight has kept river levels high. We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue any further warning messages for this area at this time.

"The forecast is for rainfall through this morning and afternoon, some of which could be heavy at times.

"Take care on riverside footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We are monitoring the situation and will update this message as necessary."
