    Current 24hr totals have Brize Norton (Oxon) on 125mm, Great Malvern (Worcs) on 89mm ... I'm sure local spots have recorded more than this in places:

    Brize Norton (81 m) 125.0

    Great Malvern (44 m) 89.0

    Lyneham (147 m) 63.0

    Hereford/Credenhill (76 m) 61.0

    Odiham (118 m) 58.0

    24hr N-W radar accumulations:

    The occlusion bringing the persistent rain over Wales, West of England and Nern England will slowly edge North over England but the western edge looks to linger over Wales over the next 12hrs, rain should generally become lighter but the persistence of rain over Western and Nern areas over the next 12hrs over what has already fallen will continue to cause river levels to rise tomorrow.

    Heavy showers area likely to develop in the clearer skies with insolation over Sern England in the afternoon to the South of the slow moving cloud and rain band over Wales and Nern England, hail and thunder possible with the showers.

    Same here, though it does demonstrate that a lousy day can be made that little bit worse by having to sit through Simply Red, Swing Out Sister or M People to get that bit of useful information!

    River Lud in Louth has now burst its banks and high water hasn't been reached yet.

    Looking at the rainfall accumulation for today, that will be enough to make the Severn flood over the next day or two without adding any more.

    One of my friends who lives in pershore says there has been a cataclysmic amount of rain; everywheres flooded and not even from the river. They're worried about the next day or two as the water heads down. Widespread flooding and chaos not seen in living memory.

    I'd agree, pershore isn't looking pretty at all, river and non river flooding and a lot of water to head into the river and head downstream, it could be a difficult few days for many in the town and surrounding areas.

    Hope the n-w server is safe.

    Lol, theyre tucked up in a datacentre in london, and if this place gets flooded by the river (have had some rainwater flooding issues here today) it'll be a major suprise, am safely (I hope) on high enough ground.

    Flood sirens now sounding in Horncastle, though 'as a precaution'.

    Water levels in Louth, Horncastle and villages in the Wolds are still rising, as are water levels in parts of the Fens. Going to be a long night, given that it's still raining here.

    I understand you have had the RAF S&R helicopter about your area most of the evening.

    Final total for yesterday's rainfall here was 138.8mm :o And it's now started raining again!

    As a comparison, the 71-00 average for the whole of July in this area is about 44mm .......

    Helicopters buzzing the town last night - and 62 people rescued from rooftops in the village of Sedgeberrow, just south of Evesham. Railway flooded. River level will be rising for the next 24 hours. More rain expected today.

    (On a personal note, the road outside my house flooded briefly but never even reached my drive let alone my house. My shop had one small leak upstairs but otherwise again safe)

    Good morning - started the day by being awoken by Flood sirens and more rain, which kicked off my saturday in a disturbingly panic-stricken way.

    The north end of town near tescos is starting to go under water

    It wasn't nearly as long lasting here but my location got the very eastern side of the heavy mas sof rain and while it only lasted 2hrs I can well believ that flooding has been severe, there was a heck of a lot of standing water yesterday afternoon even here and the rainfall at one point was more like a thunderstorm around midday!
