Little Ouse River and River Thet in Suffolk and Norfolk

Flood alert

River levels remain high and have been slowly rising at the Redbridge river gauge as a result of recent rainfall. Consequently, the risk of flooding remains. We expect flooding to affect Little Ouse River from Rickinghall to Hockwold, including The Black Bourn, and River Thet from Attleborough to Thetford. Further rainfall is forecast today, Wednesday 20th January. We expect river levels to rise in response to any rainfall, because the ground in the river catchment is already saturated. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, Thursday 21st January, or as the situation changes.
