ALTHOUGH the snow and ice is mostly gone, heavy rain is still causing disruption across the region.

Flood alerts have been issued across the Cotswolds and Severn areas and  a power cut near Stroud has left more than 400 homes without electricity.

The poor weather is expected to continue with the Met Office issuing another weather warning for rain from Saturday evening through into Sunday morning with the organsation expecting disruption to travel as a result.

Between 15 and 25mm of rain is likely with some areas seeing as much as 30-40mm in just a few hours in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Wet conditions combined with freezing temperatures yesterday evening resulted in several incidents, including a crash on the Fromebridge Mill roundabout.
