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

for Flood alert in force now Middle River Great Ouse in Milton Keynes, Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels are continuing to fall slowly but remain high at the Newport Pagnell Cemetery river gauge as a result of rainfall on Saturday 16th January. Consequently, the risk of flooding remains. We expect flooding to affect the River Great Ouse from Newport Pagnell to Roxton. No further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high over the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 18/01/2021, or as the situation changes.
