Rescue boats from Gloucestershire's Fire & Rescue Service and Severn Area Rescue Association have been operating overnight searching for a person heard shouting in a flooded area at 0230 this morning Tewkesbury local crews were joined by crews from Gloucester but nothing was found.
A further flood alert has been issued for the River Frome in Stroud overnight and the service has attended some individual property floodings in the Tetbury area this morning.
Fire Gold continues to consider Environment Agency predictions over the next 48hrs but conditions aren't expected to worsen at this time.
Senior Operations Commander for Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue, Dave Hornibrook said, "there is no cause for concern, this is just the service doing its normal job but reminds people not to wade or drive into flooded water."
