FLOOD alerts for local stretches of the River Thames have been lifted, with no flood alerts affecting the local area surrounding Newbury today (Monday).

Two flood alerts issued last week by the Environment Agency (EA) for the River Thames have been lifted, affecting a stretch of the river from Days Lock, to above Pangbourne and including Goring and Streatley and a further alert affecting an area of the river from Pangbourne to Purley.

The EA issued the following update at 6.30pm yesterday (Sunday):

“Levels on the River Thames from Pangbourne to Purley have fallen, and are expected to continue to fall over the coming days. Flooding of low lying land and roads is no longer expected. However, some standing water may remain in areas closest to the river and levels remain sensitive to further rainfall. The weather prospects are to expect the odd shower this evening and overnight. Any showers should clear on Monday morning to leave a generally dry day.”

A total 10 flood alerts remain in place across the south east today, none local.

There are currently four flood warnings flooding expected (immediate action required) and 28 flood alerts (flooding is possible, be prepared) affecting England and Wales, none local.
