Flood warnings remain after downpour in central England

London, March 10 (IANS) A day after heavy rains and consequent disruption, dozens of flood warnings remained in place in central England on Thursday.

The worst-affected areas were in the Midlands where roads were flooded, rail passengers were stranded and many schools remained closed, BBC reported.

About 50 Environment Agency flood warnings — meaning “immediate action required” — were currently in place.

More than 160 lower-level flood alerts have been issued across much of England and parts of Wales.
