Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels are rising on the River Windrush as a result of heavy rainfall. Therefore, flooding of low-lying land and roads is expected from later this afternoon 13/12/19. No further rainfall is forecast today. However, we expect river levels to remain high for at least the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are operating weirs to reduce flood risk and in the area clearing weed/trash screens. Please remain safe and aware of your local surroundings and refer to the ‘River and Sea levels in England’ webpage for current river levels. This message will be updated this evening, 13/12/19, or as the situation changes.
