River's up

Nigel over on the WFA has some photos of Worcester 'under Severn' I noted last night and this morning that the Basin in Stourport has of course flooded into the car-park and in fact has reached the bridge path and into the flood arches. On the other side the Severn has risen to cover the Riverside path, which is what happened before. The Stour is also well up and I noted it not to far from covering the bank next to Severn Glazing.

All this of course has nothing, I repeat nothing, to do with the barriers put up in various places preventing the river from flowing into its natural flood plain and shunting all the water downstream to us.
