STORM Dennis has brought flooding disruption to many parts of the area, with roads closed due to severe floods and rail services cancelled.

The Met Office has issued amber alerts – meaning people must be prepared to change plans and protect themselves and their family from the storm.

Rail services have been suspended after tracks were submerged by rain, and flooding saw the M54 westbound closed at Telford, along with many other major routes.

Locally police say they are currently dealing with large amounts of flooding across the force area.

A spokesman said: "Please do not ignore road closures, they are there for your safety. To help us out please only use 999 in an emergency and where possible report crime online."

People are being warned not to travel on trains.

Relief from Storm Dennis is still some distance away, a Met Office spokesman said, adding that “heavy rain and strong winds” would continue across large parts of the UK on Sunday.

“South Wales will see a lot of rain fall before Dennis moves north later to Scotland and Northern Ireland,” he said.
