Flooding hits parts of Yorkshire

Flooding has caused widespread disruption across North and West Yorkshire.

Following heavy rain over the weekend, flood warnings were issued for rivers including the Aire, Nidd, Ure, Ouse, Swale and Wharfe.

The Environment Agency says river levels should have now peaked, but everyone is being urged to keep an eye on weather forecasts.

Ilkley and Otley were among the worst affected areas on Sunday, with some roads barely passable in places.

The flooding also had a major impact on rail services from Leeds to Ilkley and Skipton.

A spokesperson for Northern Rail said: "We expect to be running our normal timetable by Tuesday morning at the latest.

"Some services may still be delayed or cancelled at short notice in the meantime while our crew and trains return from being displaced by the flooding.

"We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused to your journeys during the recent disruption and thank you for your patience."

Prince Henry's Grammar School in Otley was also closed on Monday.
