Flooding in Warwickshire is causing severe delays on the roads once again this morning, including in Leamington town centre.

The River Leam burst its banks, flooding parts of Jephson Gardens and the Pump Room Gardens, and the flooding has caused long delays for people trying to get through the town.

Along with Leamington town centre, the A428 in Bretford is blocked at Bretford Bridge, and Main Street in Wolston is closed at the Wolston Bridge junction.

The A425 at Lower Shuckburgh at the Jubilee Avenue junction is also closed.

Less severe disruption has been reported near Eathorpe, School Lane in Hunningham, and School Hill in Offchurch at the Welsh Road junction.
