Eckington Bridge near Pershore has been closed to traffic due to flooding.

Recent heavy rainfall has seen water levels rise in the area once again and the bridge is now impassable.

Worcestershire Highways & Travel's Twitter account warned drivers that the bridge was out of action at 8.14am this morning.

First Bus also informed its social media followers that its route 53/54 service would be diverting through Great Comberton, causing possible delays of up to 30 minutes.

Drivers can keep an eye on @WorcsTravel on Twitter for updates on when the bridge can be reopened.
