end of the week? No. Had Russia heading our way and wet and windy

:00:00.3:59:59

again. That is Hello and welcome to Midlands Today.

:00:00.:00:00.

The headlines tonight: Fifty residents rescued from sheltered

:00:00.:00:08.

accommodation in Worcester as the flood waters continue to rise.

:00:09.:00:17.

Yesterday I could get to work through the laundrette, and we were

:00:18.:00:23.

all right. But this morning when we tried to go to work there was no way

:00:24.:00:26.

to get out. Families and businesses across the

:00:27.:00:29.

region are feeling the force of the floods this evening.

:00:30.:00:31.

In Herefordshire, families have been trapped as the River Wye continues

:00:32.:00:34.

to rise. In Shropshire, flood barriers may be doing their job, but

:00:35.:00:38.

businesses are still feeling the impact.

:00:39.:00:47.

Of the ten museums we have had to close two.

:00:48.:00:51.

While farmers across the region have stepped in with animal feed to help

:00:52.:00:54.

farms submerged in floods on the Somerset Levels.

:00:55.:00:58.

And this is what we so desperately need and what I'm sure we're all

:00:59.:01:02.

dying to see. Believe it or not, it is still possible this week. But

:01:03.:01:05.

will it make any difference against the backlash of rain? Find out later

:01:06.:01:07.

how much more we can expect. Good evening. The River Severn

:01:08.:01:19.

reached its highest recorded level in Worcester today matching the peak

:01:20.:01:25.

in the floods of 2007. At Barbourne in the city, it hit 5.65 metres and

:01:26.:01:29.

there are fears it could rise further. The Wye's also giving

:01:30.:01:35.

concern. In Ross on Wye, the river's reached 4.32 metres ` still below

:01:36.:01:41.

2007 levels but expected to rise. Across the region, there are 42

:01:42.:01:45.

flood warnings tonight and 40 flood alerts. We've four reports tonight `

:01:46.:01:49.

from Herefordshire and from our reporters along the Severn, in

:01:50.:01:51.

Goucestershire, in Shropshire and first from Ben Sidwell in Worcester.

:01:52.:01:58.

Being led to safety. The residents of these sheltered housing flats in

:01:59.:02:01.

Worcester usually have a beautiful view of the River Severn. Today that

:02:02.:02:08.

view was too close for comfort. Around the 43 flats 2`3 feet of

:02:09.:02:19.

water. It is a worry. You are living next to the River Severn. We can't

:02:20.:02:25.

get flood insurance. I have no insurance. But I have put everything

:02:26.:02:31.

up off the floor. Specialist Water Rescue Teams from

:02:32.:02:34.

Hereford Worcester Fire Service called in to help evacuate the 50 or

:02:35.:02:40.

so residents. Yesterday I could get out to work through the laundrette.

:02:41.:02:47.

But this morning when we tried to go to work there was no way we could

:02:48.:02:53.

get out. The situation is untenable. We are moving around the corner.

:02:54.:02:59.

Behind me there are sandbags around the wooden structure, that is a

:03:00.:03:03.

small electricity substation. If that goes, part of the city will its

:03:04.:03:08.

power. From the air the extent of the flooding was even more clear.

:03:09.:03:12.

Roads, paths and fields all now just an extension of the River Severn.

:03:13.:03:15.

And for commuters travelling around Worcester became a battle in itself.

:03:16.:03:25.

This is the only way to get from one side of Worcester to the other. The

:03:26.:03:31.

main bridges closed, this road is over a foot underwater. The only way

:03:32.:03:35.

people can get from one side to the other is now by shuttle bus.

:03:36.:03:41.

It is absolutely crazy. I've never seen anything like this. The queues

:03:42.:03:50.

this morning were horrendous. We have got them all across. Good job.

:03:51.:03:53.

Some did just manage to get through using another form of transport, but

:03:54.:03:57.

with the waters still rising those crossing the bridge had fears they

:03:58.:04:04.

may not make it back. I am worried. I have come from

:04:05.:04:07.

Stratford`upon`Avon. I hope I can get home tonight. We will get back.

:04:08.:04:14.

It doesn't worry us. We can stay for coffee. At least these residents

:04:15.:04:18.

will be able to stay somewhere safe and dry now, but they're unlikely to

:04:19.:04:22.

be the last people rescued from rising waters in Worcester this

:04:23.:04:27.

week. Well, Ben is in the centre of Worcester now, a city of 100,000 cut

:04:28.:04:31.

in two when the main bridge over the Severn was shut. Ben, what's the

:04:32.:04:40.

latest? Well, the bridge remains closed. It will do for some time.

:04:41.:04:45.

Other problems in Worcester, West tellers there are 4000 homes without

:04:46.:04:53.

power, 10,000 homes across the West Midlands with no electricity at all.

:04:54.:04:59.

Dave Hudson is from the Environment Agency. We are 50 metres from where

:05:00.:05:04.

the bank should be. The worst floods we have seen. Yes, the river levels

:05:05.:05:09.

are high. An important difference from this and 2007 is the

:05:10.:05:17.

high`intensity rain. Tens of thousands of properties were

:05:18.:05:24.

flooded. We are talking about 1400 properties, we have protected 10,000

:05:25.:05:30.

or more. It is a lot, I got the numbers wrong. What about the

:05:31.:05:37.

barriers? People are saying will it hold because there is more rain

:05:38.:05:43.

tonight. We are confident the barriers will be OK. I was up at one

:05:44.:05:49.

of them is morning. There was a good way to go yet. We have seen nothing

:05:50.:05:56.

forecast that will imply anything getting to that seriousness. The

:05:57.:06:00.

weather here is dry at the moment, very windy but it looks like there

:06:01.:06:04.

may be some rain later. This water is still rising in the city.

:06:05.:06:11.

Getting about is a major problem in flooded areas and roads can rapidly

:06:12.:06:14.

become impassable, leaving families cut`off. Sarah Falkland reports on

:06:15.:06:17.

coping with the floods in Herefordshire.

:06:18.:06:23.

It isn't often people are quite so delighted to see a film crew but

:06:24.:06:29.

Dave has not had any visitors for a week. Bad drainage means the roads

:06:30.:06:34.

to his home has become a river. Horrendous. At the moment it has

:06:35.:06:40.

reduced six inches in depth. This is the end of the lane where it is the

:06:41.:06:45.

shallowest. At the bottom it is two feet plus. While Dave can hop over

:06:46.:06:50.

the fields, his mother`in`law can not. She needed a first responder

:06:51.:06:56.

team to get her to hospital. I am fed up with it. This year is worse

:06:57.:07:03.

than last year. We went down in the 4`wheel drive and it was really

:07:04.:07:09.

really frightening. And it must have been for anyone near the river. The

:07:10.:07:15.

roads were all but impassable and nearby drivers had to content with

:07:16.:07:22.

flash flooding. You have to be very very careful. I am taking it easy.

:07:23.:07:32.

Are you OK in the floodwater? I am not hanging around. The flood water

:07:33.:07:36.

caused problems on the main road as well. And at the farm they were

:07:37.:07:42.

repairing the worst. The farmer is expecting cattle to be flooded out

:07:43.:07:46.

by the morning. So much for the country but inner`city it is pretty

:07:47.:07:52.

much business as usual. The River Wye is behaving itself, not too

:07:53.:07:57.

menacing, only one flood warning in place but that is further

:07:58.:08:01.

downstream. Further along the River Wye, at least one inhabitant is

:08:02.:08:07.

oblivious of the drama. Divina the seal spotted near Monmouth. Well,

:08:08.:08:14.

Shefali is in the newsroom. More rain to come. And lots of reports of

:08:15.:08:18.

storm damage tonight. Virgin Trains suspending most services we've been

:08:19.:08:22.

told. And at least 30 roads blocked in Shropshire alone? It is grim.

:08:23.:08:31.

Yesterday we mentioned amber warnings, strong gusts of 60 miles

:08:32.:08:37.

an hour and as you will see later, it has been confirmed by the figures

:08:38.:08:43.

and wind speed. We haven't managed to record any huge amounts of rain

:08:44.:08:48.

but the potential was there for an inch of rain. So expect the same

:08:49.:08:56.

later this week. More low pressure is moving up. Gloucestershire

:08:57.:09:05.

suffered some of the worst flooding in 2007. The worry now is that the

:09:06.:09:09.

latest heavy rain could see some homes flooded for the first time

:09:10.:09:13.

since then, as Steve Knibbs has been finding out.

:09:14.:09:15.

This was a riverside caravan park ` now part of the river. The

:09:16.:09:19.

electrical hook ups poke out of the water in the distance. With the

:09:20.:09:22.

Severn expected to rise, the owners are once again on edge. Just packing

:09:23.:09:29.

an overnight bag in case we have to move out. The moment we think we are

:09:30.:09:37.

safe, not 100% certain, you have to take each day and each hour as it

:09:38.:09:43.

comes. This is an area used to battening down the hatches. In

:09:44.:09:47.

Longford, people are ready well in advance. People know the score, they

:09:48.:09:54.

all have televisions. They experienced 2007.

:09:55.:09:57.

And the sandbags keep on coming ` well over 1500 have been delivered

:09:58.:10:00.

this week in Tewkesbury Borough alone. It is important the sandbags

:10:01.:10:07.

are going to the right people in the right way. We deliver sandbags to

:10:08.:10:10.

vulnerable people. But not all of them seem to be

:10:11.:10:16.

staying put. There were two tonnes of sandbags and there was a time

:10:17.:10:20.

taken away. The emergency services are ready

:10:21.:10:23.

too. Today fire crews trained to launch one of their boats in the

:10:24.:10:27.

choppy swollen river at Gloucester with serious discussions taking

:10:28.:10:30.

place to make sure the county is ready. The local resilience Forum is

:10:31.:10:38.

meeting, they are looking at contingency measures to be put in

:10:39.:10:42.

place. It is an opportunity to reassure people we are doing

:10:43.:10:47.

everything we can to make sure they stay safe. This van driver was

:10:48.:10:51.

rescued after thinking he could make it along a flooded road. The risk

:10:52.:10:58.

took up valuable time from the Welsh fire crews sent in to save him.

:10:59.:11:01.

Rising river levels are posing a real threat to life and property

:11:02.:11:05.

tonight, but so far flood barriers are doing their job. There has been

:11:06.:11:08.

an impact, though, on businesses and tourist attractions, as Joanne

:11:09.:11:11.

Writtle's been finding out along the River Severn in Shropshire.

:11:12.:11:14.

Ironbridge in Shropshire ` flood barriers holding back water. But not

:11:15.:11:20.

everywhere's escaped. A short distance away museums have been hit.

:11:21.:11:29.

Of the ten museums through the site, we have closed two. At the antiques

:11:30.:11:38.

and craft centre volunteers and business owners have moved stock

:11:39.:11:46.

from the ground. This is the one thing that is put into people, to

:11:47.:11:51.

help one another in dire need like this.

:11:52.:11:53.

The water has seeped in once this week. They fear it'll return soon.

:11:54.:12:00.

We are quite worried because we have 75 traders in here which is a lots

:12:01.:12:07.

of stock and we have been moving the stock to try to protect it because

:12:08.:12:11.

it is their businesses as well as ours.

:12:12.:12:17.

Hit hasn't stopped raining ours and we headed further downstream where

:12:18.:12:20.

the water is causing yet more problems. The town's golf course has

:12:21.:12:25.

been closed for days. A few holes beside the river were initially

:12:26.:12:28.

closed, but now swathes of the course have been affected by

:12:29.:12:38.

constant rain. Gutted. The club is losing money obviously. We are

:12:39.:12:43.

hoping for some fair`weather to get members back on the course playing

:12:44.:12:47.

again and we can generate revenue. Pitches at the riverside Bridgnorth

:12:48.:12:50.

Rugby Club are submerged. And the neighbouring children's play area

:12:51.:12:53.

out of action. The River Severn is wild right now. And all this water

:12:54.:12:55.

is heading to Worcestershire. Well, amidst all the concern about

:12:56.:13:05.

rising river levels here, farmers in Somerset have been coping with

:13:06.:13:09.

dreadful floods for a month now. Many can't get on their land and

:13:10.:13:12.

they're struggling to find the money to feed livestock. Our Rural Affairs

:13:13.:13:15.

Correspondent David Gregory`Kumar reports on how food aid from our

:13:16.:13:18.

farming community is helping them survive.

:13:19.:13:25.

Another load of donations arrives at Morton Bagot in Warwickshire. Last

:13:26.:13:33.

Wednesday, we watched the news in the evening, watching him loading

:13:34.:13:41.

his cattle up in the water. He was talking about where will his life be

:13:42.:13:49.

from now on? Will he be a bit carry on farming? He is a large farmer. If

:13:50.:13:57.

he is struggling, the smaller farmers will be struggling even more

:13:58.:14:01.

so. So the word went out on social media and internet forums and this

:14:02.:14:04.

is the response, tonnes of food and bedding but this is half the battle,

:14:05.:14:08.

next you have to get it to the Somerset floodzone. Few down to

:14:09.:14:17.

Somerset will be ?200 and that is just one cost but it is for a good

:14:18.:14:22.

cause and if we can do our bit, we will. This help is welcomed by the

:14:23.:14:29.

Somerset farmers. It is wonderful however one has chipped in to help

:14:30.:14:36.

us. This donation will become feed for cattle and in the longer term

:14:37.:14:41.

farmers will be looking to donate grass seeds so they can help farmers

:14:42.:14:46.

in Somerset reseed the land when the water levels go down to grow grass

:14:47.:14:51.

for cattle and sheep. When the puddles dry up on the levels they

:14:52.:14:57.

are likely to have no grass for months and months. They are going to

:14:58.:15:02.

be desperate for forage for a long long time. We are in this the long

:15:03.:15:09.

haul. This help will continue long after the waters have disappeared.

:15:10.:15:13.

We'll have the latest on the flooding a little later. But, to

:15:14.:15:16.

keep right up to date with conditions close to you, the best

:15:17.:15:20.

advice as always is to tune into your bbc local radio station.

:15:21.:15:26.

The accomplice of a triple murderer has been found guilty of aiding her

:15:27.:15:30.

sadistic killing spree. Joanna Dennehy killed three men in

:15:31.:15:33.

Cambridgeshire and Gary Stretch helped get rid of the bodies. They

:15:34.:15:36.

then drove to Herefordshire where Stretch used to live. In Hereford,

:15:37.:15:40.

Dennehy stabbed two men at random ` both survived. Giles Latcham has the

:15:41.:15:47.

background to a shocking case. Strolling hand in hand at motorway

:15:48.:15:49.

services in Worcestershire, the odd couple ` cold`eyed killer Joanna

:15:50.:15:53.

Dennehy and her giant sidekick seven foot three Gary Stretch. She with

:15:54.:15:59.

three murders already to her name ` he her faithful driver and helper

:16:00.:16:03.

and the orgy of violence was far from over. If the police in Hereford

:16:04.:16:13.

had not intervened when they did, where this trail of destruction

:16:14.:16:20.

would have ended is anyone's guess. She is seen with friends buying, ``

:16:21.:16:25.

tobacco. At random she selected her first victim. It was here the car

:16:26.:16:31.

driven by Gary Stretch pulled up, Joanna Dennehy let out and launched

:16:32.:16:35.

a ferocious attack on a local man, a postman, walking his dog. That man

:16:36.:16:42.

was stabbed twice in the back and shoulder. The man in the shop, Mark

:16:43.:16:49.

Lloyd, was in the car as the attack took place. He has spoken

:16:50.:16:57.

exclusively to the BBC. She had a knife in her hand and a smile on her

:16:58.:17:04.

face. Is it me or is it you? She got in the car, the knife in our hand,

:17:05.:17:08.

she kissed Gary on the cheek and said, thanks for that. Another

:17:09.:17:15.

victim was attacked at random, a dog walker stabbed 40 times. She said

:17:16.:17:21.

something to the effect of luck, you are bleeding, I had better do some

:17:22.:17:28.

more. I think I said, leave me alone, please. Please leave me

:17:29.:17:35.

alone. But she carried on. In Cambridgeshire, she had stabbed

:17:36.:17:42.

three men and Gary Stretch helped dispose of the bodies they headed to

:17:43.:17:45.

Herefordshire a neighbour remembers them turning up. I saw them once in

:17:46.:17:53.

a car. It is the only time I saw her. Gary came in for breakfast and

:17:54.:17:58.

we caught in the gentle giants because he was so polite and I can't

:17:59.:18:04.

believe this has happened. Over the road, other neighbours remember him

:18:05.:18:11.

differently. He played loud music late at night into the early hours

:18:12.:18:15.

and when my dad asked him politely, he would get aggressive and

:18:16.:18:22.

eventually it ended with him throwing potatoes across our drive

:18:23.:18:28.

and at the windows. In April they visited a friend and took pictures,

:18:29.:18:34.

a macabre pose with an ornamental knife and handcuffs on the

:18:35.:18:38.

waistband. Those pictures were taken in Herefordshire. They visited the

:18:39.:18:46.

same day they went to Hereford. She with murder in her mind. In a phone

:18:47.:18:52.

call from prison, Gary Stretch told his ex`wife Joanna Dennehy was off

:18:53.:18:57.

her head, something that turned him from small`time burglar to willing

:18:58.:19:00.

accomplice in murder. Friends or lovers, the true nature of their

:19:01.:19:02.

relationship remains their secret. But together, to a city wholly

:19:03.:19:06.

unused to it, they brought horror both random and extreme.

:19:07.:19:12.

Birmingham City Council's to put up its council tax by 2% as it

:19:13.:19:18.

struggles to save ?822m by 2018. The new city library has a ?1.3m funding

:19:19.:19:22.

gap and could have its opening hours cut. It's been confirmed 1000 jobs

:19:23.:19:25.

will also be lost across the council. The council leader says a

:19:26.:19:28.

survey of Birmingham people showed that they backed the increase.

:19:29.:19:41.

It puts more money into the budget, someone said a million but it

:19:42.:19:47.

multiplies up to three point for in subsequent years. It is a way of

:19:48.:19:50.

avoiding further cuts. A knife surrender started in

:19:51.:19:54.

Birmingham today in response to a number of killings. But the mother

:19:55.:19:57.

of a teenage rapper fatally stabbed last year says she's bitterly

:19:58.:20:00.

disappointed that she and her son's fans aren't playing a bigger part.

:20:01.:20:02.

Our special correspondent, Peter Wilson reports.

:20:03.:20:07.

A photo call after months of waiting the secure knife bins were on the

:20:08.:20:12.

streets. The young the great and the good all in the spotlight. But this

:20:13.:20:16.

woman was not invited. Alison Cope was due to play a big part in the

:20:17.:20:20.

anti knife campaign ` her son 18`year`old Joshua Ribera was

:20:21.:20:21.

stabbed and killed last September. Known as Depzman his music had a

:20:22.:20:32.

growing fanbase but today his Mum felt left out in the cold. The

:20:33.:20:40.

amount of people that loved his music and who care he isn't here,

:20:41.:20:45.

they could reached out to all of those people by using his name with

:20:46.:20:49.

my permission. But they have chosen not to and it is frustrating.

:20:50.:20:53.

The New Crime Commissioner wants this initiative to be community led

:20:54.:20:56.

getting everyone on board will be essential to its success. We hope a

:20:57.:21:03.

second wave in South Birmingham and we need to publicise those. We are

:21:04.:21:09.

hopeful to be able to fully involve those in the future.

:21:10.:21:12.

For a decade knife crime in Birmingham has fallen by 75% but now

:21:13.:21:16.

its rising again ` the police say the word amnesty is wrong there's

:21:17.:21:19.

never a reason to carry a knife. All weapons should be surrendered. One

:21:20.:21:23.

young musician has taken that message into local schools. A child

:21:24.:21:31.

that feels they need to get rid of something, it is easier for them to

:21:32.:21:36.

drop it off rather than answering to somebody. These pins alone don't

:21:37.:21:44.

prevent knife crime, everyone says education is needed to change

:21:45.:21:47.

attitudes and to achieve that, everyone will have to work together.

:21:48.:21:55.

Onto football now and West Bromwich Albion's one`all draw with Chelsea

:21:56.:21:58.

means they're now out of the bottom three. The Premier League leaders

:21:59.:22:06.

went in front just before half`time at the Hawthorns. But Pepe Mel's men

:22:07.:22:12.

fought back. And three minutes from the end, Victor Anichebe scored to

:22:13.:22:18.

earn a valuable point. The perfect tonic before West Brom fly off to

:22:19.:22:21.

Spain for six days warm`weather training. Aston Villa were denied

:22:22.:22:25.

Storm damage causing major cancellations on Virgin Trains and

:22:42.:22:44.

many roads are blocked. It is looking dreadful. Yes, the north and

:22:45.:22:51.

west of the region has borne the brunt of the damaging winds and the

:22:52.:22:57.

wind speed we have seen across the western fringes would seem to bear

that out. They have exceeded 60 mph. Onto the rainfall totals and

:23:05.:23:14.

those have not been as impressive. The totals began to mount up after

:23:15.:23:21.

48 hours. A few saw that, Hereford seems to have been the wettest place

:23:22.:23:24.

in the region without 290 millimetres of rain. We could see

:23:25.:23:32.

more of that by Friday. When the low pressure system is out of the way,

:23:33.:23:36.

we have one days grace and then this next system, and Atlantic glow

:23:37.:23:42.

rattled up. It is coupled with strong winds with wraparound

:23:43.:23:49.

occlusion. Yellow warnings for the rain coming on Friday, it will

:23:50.:23:57.

amount to an inch of rain. It is all totting up and river levels are

:23:58.:24:01.

getting higher. Not great news and more flooding is on the way. For the

:24:02.:24:08.

time being, we are running the risk of some strong gusts across northern

:24:09.:24:13.

and western parts, this is one of the windiest spells of the day this

:24:14.:24:17.

evening and night. After that, they will start to ease but we are

:24:18.:24:22.

looking at a dry periods towards the end of the night but a few showers

:24:23.:24:26.

running across the south and they could turn wintry. Lows of around 12

:24:27.:24:34.

Celsius in towns and cities but lower than that in rural spots.

:24:35.:24:39.

Tomorrow, a dry day, a few showers around the region and tomorrow will

:24:40.:24:45.

be a cold day but some sunshine and the respite from the rain until

:24:46.:24:57.

Friday. Staying with the flooding here and a report now from Sian

:24:58.:25:00.

Lloyd in Bewdley. She's spent the day in the picturesque

:25:01.:25:03.

Worcestershire town on the banks of the River Severn where families are

:25:04.:25:06.

waiting nervously tonight and hoping that the flood barriers will keep

:25:07.:25:09.

the rising waters at bay. The defences have never been tested to

:25:10.:25:12.

this extent. The River Severn is continuing to rise with another peak

:25:13.:25:17.

expected on Friday. Without these defences, Bewdley would be

:25:18.:25:22.

underwater. The town has suffered severe flooding in the past and the

:25:23.:25:26.

people who live along the river are taking chances. Flood barriers and

:25:27.:25:35.

sandbags and it is just a precaution really because I know the river can

:25:36.:25:40.

come up. We have never had it this high before but we never had the

:25:41.:25:46.

defences before. This is trying the defences out. Lindsay is feeling the

:25:47.:25:50.

effects of the weather. She has cancelled bookings for her holiday

:25:51.:25:55.

cottage but a pump is keeping the worst at bay. It is the water table

:25:56.:26:03.

levels. There is so much water in the ground it has to go somewhere so

:26:04.:26:07.

it comes to the floor and it takes the access waterway otherwise I

:26:08.:26:15.

would be knee deep. People here tell me they have never seen the river so

:26:16.:26:22.

high. It matches the peak of the record`breaking floods of 2007. This

:26:23.:26:28.

barrier currently is 1.65 metres high, it is keeping back the River

:26:29.:26:36.

Severn. But it needs to go higher. Bewdley had its big investment in

:26:37.:26:38.

flood defences that other communities are now calling for.

:26:39.:26:44.

Contingency plans are in place, rest centres will be set up should

:26:45.:26:55.

evacuation be needed. Fingers crossed for everybody there. Live

:26:56.:26:59.

now to Worcester. How is the city coping? Well, Worcester is a city

:27:00.:27:06.

used to flooding but even by their standards this is pretty bad. The

:27:07.:27:12.

town has been split into, many roads including the river bridge are

:27:13.:27:19.

closed. Those people living around the river whose properties have not

:27:20.:27:23.

flooded will spend most of the night battling to keep properties dry. And

:27:24.:27:29.

with these levels still rising, it will be a tough night and a very

:27:30.:27:33.

long few days for the people of Worcester.

:27:34.:27:35.

That was the Midlands Today. I'll be back at ten o'clock with the very

:27:36.:27:40.

latest on the floodwaters. Have a good evening. Bye for now.
