Flooding has affected parts of East Yorkshire, although the region has escaped the worst of the weather that has hit elsewhere in northern England.

The Environment Agency issued flood alerts for local roads and low-lying land around Pocklington, Wilberfoss, Wressle, Elvington and Stamford Bridge, amid reports of serious flooding on a number of roads.

Police closed the A166 at Stamford Bridge and reported delays on the A1079, where there were reports of flooding at Allerthorpe and at Dunnington on the way into York.

A section of the A165 north of Bridlington was blocked by floods at Speeton.

The Weir Caravan Park in Stamford Bridge had to be evacuated after the Derwent broke its banks causing localised flooding in the town.
