The Environment Agency has issued two ‘danger to life’ flood warnings in Shropshire and a further 103 flood warnings and 147 flood alerts across England and Wales.

The Environment Agency forecast ongoing flooding during the coming days, with the UK having seen nearly of its average February rainfall.
Some areas experiencing a month’s worth of rain in 24 hours over the weekend.
Low-lying areas along the Severn are forecast to be hit by severe flooding today due to record-breaking river levels.
Flood defences could be breached in Ironbridge, Shropshire, and Bewdley, Worcestershire.
Homes were evacuated yesterday after the River Aire burst its banks in Snaith, in East Yorkshire with social media users posting footage of water pouring over flood banks.
The Environment Agency said: “Groundwater levels across parts of Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire and Sussex are continuing to rise and will lead to further flooding later this week.
“As of 12.30pm on Tuesday there are two severe flood warnings for Ironbridge and Shrewsbury, meaning there is an immediate risk to life.”
A further 106 flood warnings, meaning that flooding is expected, and 155 flood alerts, meaning that flooding is possible, are also in place across the country.
Flooding in central Shrewsbury forced the cancellation of train services between the Shropshire town and the West Midlands on Tuesday afternoon.
99 Snow and ice warnings have been issued across the UK today9 Hundreds of flood warnings and flood alerts have also been issuedA spokesman for West Midlands Trains said extremely high water levels under a viaduct close to Shrewsbury station had forced Network Rail to close the line to the West Midlands from 2pm.
Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director for West Midlands Railway, said: “The safety of our customers and staff is of paramount importance and the extremely high water levels in Shropshire have forced Network Rail to shut the railway as a precaution.
“Passengers are advised to check their train before travelling and anyone travelling to or from Shrewsbury will need to allow extra time to complete their journey via road transport.
“We hope that water levels will drop enough for Network Rail to reopen the line by Wednesday morning but passengers are advised to check live travel information before setting out tomorrow.”
The Environment Agency, which has mobilised more than 1,000 staff per day since the start of Storm Dennis, is urging people to check their flood risk and remain prepared to take action.
Caroline Douglass, director of incident management at the Environment Agency, said: “Our thoughts are with all who have been and continue to be affected by the persistent and extreme weather.
“It is devastating to see your home or business flooded, and as the case is for some, be asked to evacuate.
“River levels remain exceptionally high and communities along the River Severn, in particular Shrewsbury, Bewdley, Bridgnorth and Ironbridge, should be ready for potentially severe flooding.
“River levels are also of concern on the lower River Ouse at Cawood.

British fans drink Las Vegas dry in Tyson Fury world title celebrations as beer runs out following brutal Wilder KO – The Sun



AN army of 20,000 jubilant British boxing fans drank Sin City dry on Sunday as they celebrated Tyson Fury’s world title victory.
As soon as Fury, 31, finished serenading the crowd with American Pie, supporters were on the lash on the Las Vegas strip.

One well-oiled fan said: “First they sold out of Guinness and now they’ve sold out of lager. I don’t think they’re used to how much we drink. We’ve drunk the place dry.”
Gypsy King Fury — who could next face fellow Brit Anthony Joshua — joked about having “a couple of glasses of water and a slice of pizza” after his technical knockout victory over Deontay Wilder, 34.
But Tyson was also in high spirits, turning up at the after-party at 2am US time.
Fan John McMullan, 22, said: “It was loud and noisy. He sang and he danced. He was up and down on the stage.
“We drank the bar dry — it was carnage. I don’t think Las Vegas has seen a party like it before.”
Outside there were reports that drunken fans were falling in the famous dancing fountains in front of the Bellagio Hotel.

This city just loves that gypsy.”
The newly-crowned WBC heavyweight champ arrived at celebrations wearing the emblazoned suit he wore for the post-fight presser, as well as the green tie he had nicked off WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman.
As former One Direction star Liam Payne sang on stage, Fury wrapped himself up in a Union Flag before dancing with his stunning wife Paris.
He then took the mic to entertain his hundreds of fans, including a rendition of the now classic boxing anthem Sweet Caroline.
Fury also sang ‘There Were Three Bronze Bombers In The Air’ to the tune of the controversial Ten German Bombers – a chant made by England football fans during their bitter rivalry with Germany.
But he swapped the lyrics to celebrate his win against American Wilder, who goes by the nickname the ‘Bronze Bomber’.
The 31-year-old condemned the original version of the song last June when a fan sang it at his press conference ahead of his fight against German Tom Schwarz.

Also joining the heavyweight king was brother and Love Island star Tommy and Towie legend Mark Wright.
But there didn’t appear to be any sign of Conor McGregor, despite Fury inviting him out to get “smashed out of his f***ing face” after the fight.
The Brit was sent a bottle of McGregor’s Proper Twelve as a gift before the massive, and ultimately successful, rematch.

Girl, 11, carries loaded AR-15 assault weapon into Idaho court hearing on gun legislation – The Sun



AN 11-year-old girl showed off her loaded assault rifle to lawmakers in support of a proposed gun law to prove that she is the type of person who could responsibly handle a firearm.
Bailey Nielsen stood before state lawmakers in Boise Monday for a hearing on a law that would allow visitors to Idaho who can legally possess a gun to carry a concealed weapon within city limits.
2 Bailey Nielsen, 11, brought her loaded AR-15 in front of state lawmakers in Idaho to show support for a proposed concealed carry law on MondayCredit: AP:Associated Press2 Her grandfather Charles Nielsen argued that responsible non-residents should be able to carry firearms like the AR-15 shown hereCredit: AlamyThe little girl silently stood by her grandpa’s side with her loaded AR-15 slung over her right shoulder as her grandfather Charles Nielsen addressed the committee that voted to send the bill to the state House.
“Bailey is carrying a loaded AR-15,” he told legislators.
“She carries it responsibly. She knows how not to put her finger on the trigger. We live in fear in a society that is fed fear on a daily basis.”
His granddaughter first learned how to shoot at the tender age of five and killed her first deer at nine years old, making her the perfect example of someone who’s able to handle a gun responsibly, he said.
Nielsen contends that lawmakers should extend the same concealed carry courtesy to non-residents.
“When they come to Idaho, they should be able to carry concealed, because they carry responsibly,” he argued.
“They’re law-abiding citizens. It’s the criminal we have to worry about.”
A new law enacted last summer allows Idaho residents aged 18 and older to legally carry a concealed handgun within city limits without a permit or training.

The law would extend that courtesy to any legal US resident or a member of the US armed services.
Supporters of the gun rights law claim it will give people a chance to defend themselves if necessary.
However, opponents believe allowing armed teens to carry a concealed weapon without prior training is a bad idea and could lead to shootings.
If the bill is signed into law, Idaho would be one of 14 states that allow reciprocity of concealed carry permits.

Laura Kenny risking Tokyo 2020 dreams by refusing surgery on broken shoulder after horror crash – The Sun



LAURA KENNY vowed to win three medals in Tokyo — despite doctors saying she will not make the Olympics.
Yet she admits it is a huge RISK returning so quickly to the saddle at the UCI World Track Cycling Champs in Berlin.
3 Essex legend Laura Kenny, who has won four Olympic golds, knows she is taking a big gamble by not having an operationCredit: Rex Features3 Laura Kenny won two gold at the 2016 Olympics, following two in 2012, and here celebrates with now-husband JasonCredit: ReutersFour-time Olympic champion Kenny broke a bone in her shoulder and suffered concussion in a horror World Cup crash in Canada last month.
The 27-year-old decided against an op — but has admitted for the first time she was told she might not make Japan this summer.
Kenny said: “I was slightly worried when I sat down with the collarbone specialist.
“He asked my time frame and I said four weeks. He said no chance. Then he said, ‘What’s after that?’ I said six months and the Olympics. He said even that was off the cards.
“I looked at our doctor Nigel and was like, ‘You’re having a laugh’. Nigel said ignore him — and here I am.
I  told  the  team member, ‘Please don’t let go of me because I think I’ve broken my armLaura Kenny
“I didn’t need an op and can ride a bike. But my scapula is broken — it will never be the same again.”
Kenny, who has a two-year-old son, Albie, with fellow rider Jason, was brought down accidentally by rivals in an omnium race in Milton.
She admitted: “I don’t remember much and don’t know who picked me up from the side of the track.
“I  told  the  team member, ‘Please don’t let go of me because I think I’ve broken my arm’.
“Our doctor told me to take paracetamol — but I wanted something stronger as I was in so much pain, saying, ‘Please, can I have gas and air’.
3 Laura Kenny vows to recover from what she calls the three most challenging weeks of her career by going for Olympic gold againCredit: Getty Images – Getty“I knew from giving birth that gas and air is just wonderful. I just wanted something to get rid of this pain. It felt horrendous.
“The amount of impact to break a shoulder is insane. When I went to hospital they asked if I had crashed a motorbike.
“It’s been the most challenging three weeks of my career. The first week I couldn’t pick Albie up or put him on the change table.
“Jason has been doing everything and has even had to wash my hair. I actually went 36 hours without having a shower when I got back home.”
In Germany this week, Kenny has been dropped from the signature team-pursuit event and madison and will instead race the omnium and non- Olympic scratch race.
She won two golds at both London 2012 and Rio 2016.
No Brit woman has won three gold medals at a single Olympics and Kenny does not want to give up on her dreams just yet.

Ahead of the worlds, starting tomorrow, she promised: “I’m still going for three medals. This has taken me out of one race.
“I fully believe I can be fine. Even the doctor thought I had gone crazy putting it on the line at the worlds and there are risks.
“It’s a lot weaker now if I crash and I’d be putting myself back a lot if I do. But it’s a risk I’m willing to take.”

UK weather forecast – Britain set for more flooding today as Met Office issues warnings of power cuts and travel chaos – The Sun



BRITAIN is braced for more flooding misery today, with heavy downpours and snow showers expected to cause power cuts and travel chaos.
The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland amid fears some rural communities could become cut-off during the deluge.

Further south, a fresh severe flood warning – meaning an imminent danger to life – has been issued for the River Severn in Shrewsbury, as the Environment Agency warned of ongoing flooding dangers across England.
A yellow weather warning has been issued for snow across all but the most northern areas of Scotland from 3 am today.
7 Several flood warnings are in place across BritainHigher ground is expected to see significant accumulations but commuters in the Central Belt have been warned to take care.
Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: “It could be a pretty tricky commute first thing for a lot of people.
“It’s certainly turning more wintry.”

Mr Partridge said Northern Ireland and parts of northern England are also expected to see snow, especially on higher ground and yellow weather warnings have been issued here for snow and rain.
He said that areas of the north that dodge the snow are still likely to see large amounts of rain and gale force winds.
As well as the severe flood warning for Shrewsbury, the Environment Agency (EA) had issued 91 flood warnings and 182 flood alerts by last night.
The agency’s map of warnings and alerts shows danger areas stretching from Cornwall to the Norfolk coast and from Dorset to the Scottish border.
DANGER TO LIFE
An EA spokesman said ongoing flooding is possible for parts of the West Midlands, along the Severn and Wye and also in parts of the north of England, including in the lower River Aire in Yorkshire.
He said: “This rain is falling on saturated catchments where river levels are already high.”
England has already received over 141 per cent of its average February rainfall so far but the spokesman said it was too early to comment on reports that it is looking like being the wettest February for 30 years.

Caroline Douglass, director of incident management at the Environment Agency, said: “Further spells of rain across England could cause further flooding, particularly in Yorkshire and the Midlands.
“River levels remain high and ongoing river flooding remains probable for the River Severn next week as it responds to heavy rainfall.”
The bleak outlook follows more than a fortnight of downpours and flooding that started with Storm Ciara, continued with Storm Dennis and then kept going with the storms over the weekend, which – contrary to some reports – have not been named by the Met Office.

Deontay Wilder’s trainer blasts assistant for throwing in towel against Tyson Fury against his will – The Sun



DEONTAY WILDER’S head coach has admitted that his assistant trainer made the decision to throw in the towel against Tyson Fury against his will.

The 34-year-old’s head trainer Jay Deas has revealed that co-trainer Mark Breland went against his wishes to make the call to end it.
He said: “Mark threw the towel.
“I didn’t think he should have. Deontay’s the kind of guy that’s a ‘go out on his shield’ kind of guy.
“You’ve always got to consider, also, that Deontay is a fearsome puncher, so that’s always a difficult thing, because he does always have that shot to land a big shot and turn things around.

“I’m the head coach of the team, but we do things a little bit differently. 99 percent of the time, the head coach of the team is also the guy that’s the lead in the corner.
“Ours is a little bit more like a football team, where the head coach doesn’t necessarily call the plays; you have an offensive and defensive co-ordinator.
“So, ours is a little bit like that. So, what happened between during the round, Mark said something about throwing the towel in, and I told him, ‘don’t do that’. I didn’t think he should do that.
“Then the fight went a little bit longer and then I saw the towel go in. So I haven’t talked to Mark about it, but we’ll talk about it and figure out what exactly happened there.”
Wilder, who lost the WBC title in his first-ever defeat in 44 fights, had claimed immediately after the stoppage that he wanted to carry on.
