Flood Warning issued on 1 Oct 2019 04:40
River levels have risen at the Station Road Innovia, Wigton river gauge and Wiza storage basin as a result of heavy rainfall and are forecast to rise further.

Properties in the Burnfoot area, including the School, Church, Convent, Strand Terrace, Accrington Terrace, Eastley Terrace and Printfield are likely to be affected.
We expect river levels to remain high during the early hours of Tuesday morning.
We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences.
Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and avoid contact with flood water. Rain is forecast to continue during Tuesday morning but should move away during the afternoon.
