Heavy rain has been falling on the River Nene catchment over the last few days, with further rain expected overnight, Saturday 26th December. The rising river levels have caused flooding of low lying land and roads, and we expect properties in Barnwell, to continue to be affected over the weekend, 26-27th December. Low lying properties near the River Nene are most at risk. Stay safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Avoid contact with flood water, and riverside paths. Our staff are out in the area checking flood defences, clearing blockages, and assisting the Emergency Services and Council. We are closely monitoring the situation, and this message will be updated on Sunday, 27th December, or as the situation changes.
