Bradford escaped the worst of the flooding yesterday, after heavy rain fell across the region overnight.

The Environment Agency issued 24 flood warnings across West, South and North Yorkshire.

Although there were no warnings in place on either the River Aire or Bradford Beck, the Agency warned people to be vigilant.

Phil Younge, flood risk manager at the Environment Agency, said: “We are expecting more flooding this evening and urge people to use the daylight hours to prepare for possible flooding tonight and into Monday”
