FLOODS are causing chaos on road and rail in Bromsgrove on Thursday afternoon - with the town's railway station completely blocked and some main roads described as 'impassable'.

All lines going in and out of Bromsgrove Railway Station have been blocked because of heavy rain, leading to cancellations and heavy delays to some services.

The disruption is expected to continue into rush hour and commuters are being advised to check the National Rail website before they travel.

Road transport is bring organised to replace cancelled train services but a number of roads have also been affected by floods. 

Twitter user Steve Crampton contacted the Advertiser with pictures of the heavily-hit A38.

The A38 Bromsgrove Eastern bypass has been closed between New Road & Austin Road. The section of the road near the Morrison's supermarket has been closed with some vehicles stranded.

Bromsgrove Police described the A448 Kidderminster Road as 'completely impassable', especially by Fox Lane and through Chaddesley Corbett.

Perryfield Road is also flooded.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for persistent rain, which could lead to flooding, and snow, across the Midlands this morning.

They said rain is likely to affect much of Worcestershire just weeks after River Severn levels in Worcester rose to their highest since 2014.

The rain warning was put in place at midnight and runs until 11.45pm tonight.

The majority of schools in the town have coped with the poor weather but Rigby Hall Special School closed from 1pm due to ensure pupils got home safely.
