River levels have risen as a result of persistent, heavy rainfall throughout Saturday ,10/08/19, however we do not expect any more bands of rain to come through this area so therefore we do not anticipate any impacts.

Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded with surface water. This message will be updated in 8 hours, or as the situation changes.

This flood alert has been issued in response to today’s heavy thunderstorms across South and West Yorkshire.
