Several 'act now' flood warnings and scores of flood alerts have been issued across Swindon and Wiltshire as Storm Henk hits the county.

Heavy rain and strong winds have been battering the region on Tuesday, with the Met Office issuing an amber weather warning for wind.

Meanwhile, the Environment Agency has issued six flood warnings and 18 flood alerts which cover Wiltshire.

A flood warning means flooding is expected and residents are advised to 'act now', whereas a flood alert means flooding is possible.
