Flood Warning issued on 10 Feb 2020 06:36
River levels remain high but are now falling following persistent heavy rainfall due to Storm Ciara. Whilst further showers are forecast throughout today, 10/02/20, we do not expect these to cause significant impacts to river levels, which should continue to fall. Consequently we expect the risk of flooding to reduce throughout the day, and will review the continuing need for this warning once the river drops below levels of concern.
To report property flooding, please call our incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60.
We continue to closely monitor the situation from our incident room. Please see GOV.UK for a 5 day flood forecast, plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded, and avoid contact with flood water. We will update this message by 12:00 10/02/20, or as the situation changes.

Business on Alexandra Road, Batley, are most at risk.
We expect river levels to continue to rise until around midday today, when the rain is forecast to ease into a pattern of showers.
