WEST Mercia Police has launched a dedicated online flood advice service.

A special page has been set up on its website in response to the major issues being caused by the ongoing severe weather conditions across the country.

The page can be accessed from the home page on the official West Mercia Police website. As well as offering useful advice on how to keep safe during the extreme conditions, it will also have links to various external websites where people can find out all the latest travel information and weather forecasts.
