Flood warnings issued as rivers threaten to burst banks
Urgent flood warnings have been issued after torrential rain threatened to overwhelm rivers in west Wiltshire.
The Environment Agency says residents in Bradford on Avon, Melksham, Bathford, and Malmesbury must take immediate action because of the imminent threat to properties.
Police have also warned of hazardous driving conditions and standing water on all main roads in the area.
It comes after flooding caused major disruption throughout the South West and a further Met Office yellow weather warning of more heavy rain for the next 36 hours.
