Flood alert on River Pang lifted

A FLOOD alert has been lifted, affecting the River Pang, including an area from East Ilsley to Pangbourne.

Issued on Sunday, the flood alert was one of 43 in force across the south east - meaning flooding is possible, be prepared - issued by the Environment Agency (EA) and affected an area including: Compton, Hamstead Norreys, Frilsham, Bucklebury, Stanford Dingley and Sulham Brook from Theale to Pang.

According to the EA, the flood alert was lifted yesterday (Tuesday), when the agency issued the following update:

"The levels along River Pang and Sulham Brook have fallen but may respond to further ranfall. No property flooding is expected. The weather forecast is for further showers over the next few days."

The next level of alert by the EA, a flood warning, would mean flooding is expected, immediate action is required. A total  2 flood warnings were in force across the south east on Sunday.

The highest level of alert - a severe flood warning, means danger to life. There are currently no severe flood warnings issued across the south east
