Flood Warning issued on 28 Jul 2019 11:54
Paston Brook, Werrington Brook, Marholme Brook, Brook Drain
Heavy rain falling in the River Welland catchment is expected to continue throughout Sunday 28th July. This is causing Paston Brook to rise. The rising river levels have already caused flooding of low lying land and roads in the north part of Peterborough, and we now expect properties to be affected. Low lying properties near to Paston Brook, Werrington Brook, Marholme Brook and Brook Drain are most at risk. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Please avoid contact with flood water. Our staff are out in the area to check the flood defences, clear blockages, and assist the emergency services and council. We will be closely monitoring the situation and this message will be updated as the situation changes.
