for Flood alert in force now River Kennet and its tributaries from Berwick Bassett down to Newbury

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels are still high on the River Kennet, particularly in the Knighton area but are falling slowly. Groundwater levels in the area also remain high. Therefore, flooding of low-lying land, footpaths and roads is expected to continue. The weather forecast is dry overnight with light rain forecast on Thursday (30/01/2020). We are monitoring the situation. Please refer to the 'River and Sea levels in England' webpage for current river levels and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 30/01/2020, or as the situation changes.
