Flood Warning issued on 6 Mar 2020 00:59
West Brook
River levels have now begun to fall following the heavy rainfall experienced yesterday. Water levels in the West Brook are currently below the level we would expect to directly contribute to property flooding, and the flooding conditions experienced over recent hours should now be improving. The rainfall has cleared the area and we do not expect any worsening of the situation at this current time. However, flooding to land and roads is expected to continue into Friday morning. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely from our incident room and have been working closely with our partners. Please continue to remain safe in this area and avoid contact with flood waters. We currently anticipate that this Flood Warning will be removed later this morning unless the situation changes, this should happen by 10am on 6 March.

River levels have risen as a result of persistent heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of property is imminent, particularly for properties on and around Bentley Avenue. We expect river levels to remain high until 1am on Friday 6 March 2020. We are closely monitoring the situation and our incident response staff are checking our defences and structures. Please avoid contact with flood water and remain safe in the area of concern. This message will be updated by 11pm this evening, or as the situation changes.
