Coronavirus (COVID-19): how we're protecting our flood warning service

for Flood warning in force now River Lugg at Kenwater

Flooding is expected - immediate action required

River levels are falling but remain high at the Osborne Place river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of property, roads and farmland is expected to continue. We expect flooding to affect properties in and around Vicarage Street, and Bridge Street Sports field may be impacted. No further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high for the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences and liaising with emergency services. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 5pm on Friday, 22/01/21, or as the situation changes.
