Flood alerts remain in place for the Lower and Upper River Calder.

Park Road at Elland is now closed in both directions due to the canal bursting its banks and people are being urged to avoid this area.

Water has also been reported on Mill Lane at Mixenden and Mill Royd Street/Bridge End at Brighouse. People are also being asked to avoid these areas.

Calderdale Council has said: "There is also surface water on other roads across the borough so please take care.

"If you can't see how deep it is, don't try to drive through it. Driving through surface water can also disperse water and move it towards properties so please be mindful of this and considerate to others."
