Due to heavy rain and the melting snow, the Usk burst it’s banks in Abergavenny again today.

Simon Powell of  Black Mountains Photography took these photos today. He reported that the river was up to 4.62m – the highest level since 2008. The river had largely receeded by this evening, although the A4042 to Llanellen remained closed due to flooding.
