for Flood alert in force now Lower River Great Ouse in Central Bedfordshire, Bedford Borough and Cambridgeshire

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels remain high but are beginning to fall at the Tempsford (Roxton) river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible. We expect flooding to affect the River Great Ouse from Wyboston to Earith, including Hen Brook, Fox Brook, Brampton Brook, Back Brook, Hall Green Brook, Parsons Drove Drain, Swavesey Drain and Wadsbys Folly. No further rainfall is forecast. We expect river levels to remain high until tomorrow, 20/11/19 We are closely monitoring the situation. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 20/11/19, or as the situation changes.
