River Eden
River levels have risen at the Eden Valley river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall on the Pennines and the River Eden only recently peaking upstream at Appleby. Consequently, the risk of flooding remains for Eden Hall Cricket Club and the A686 Penrith to Alston Road at Langwathby Bridge. Flood water could be deep and fast flowing, and therefore pose a risk to life. Further showers are forecast this evening and overnight. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are liaising with emergency services. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses.
