Heavy rain brought by Storm Isha has caused flooding on roads across Richmondshire today.

The A684 is blocked between Aysgarth and Bainbridge due to flood water from the River Ure.

Flooding has also been reported on Brunt Acres Road near Hawes and on the A684 at Appersett.

The A66 trans-Pennine route has been shut in both directions to high sided vehicles until 3am on Monday.


Strong winds have also caused problems with gusts of up to 80mph recorded in the upper Dales.

An amber weather warning for wind has been put in place for the region with a yellow warning for rain also issued.
