Lindfield Bridge

Warning no longer in force

River levels are still high on the Ouse, but have now peaked and are falling through Lindfield Bridge, after Storm Dennis' widespread heavy rain. Flood impacts will ease, but may continue to affect fields, gardens and roads until river levels fall further. No new property flooding is expected. Please continue to take care in and around flood affected areas, flood water can contain hidden dangers. Rain has now cleared, and only isolated showers are expected until Thursday 20/2/2020. These showers are unlikely to cause river levels to rise significantly, if at all, but river levels may not return to normal until Monday afternoon 17/2/2020. We are operating our structures at Pimms Lock to help reduce flood risk. We will continue to monitor the levels and forecast and will re-issue messages if the risk of flooding increases.

This information last updated 8:56am, Monday 17th February.
