for Flood alert in force now Rase and Upper Ancholme

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Over the last 24 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the Rase and Upper Ancholme area. The River Rase and upper reaches of the Ancholme are now rising, which will continue to cause flooding of low lying land and roads near the river from Thursday 14th November onwards. The A631 road at Bishopbridge is to be effected by flood water, resulting in some impacts on public safety. The Environment Agency recommends that you do not drive through flood water. We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. 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 on Friday 15th November or as the situation changes.
