Lower River Cam in Cambridgeshire

Flood alert

River levels are rising at the Dernford and Stapleford river gauges as a result of recent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of property, roads and farmland is possible today, Friday 15th January and into tomorrow, Saturday 16th January. We expect flooding to affect the River Cam from Stapleford to Waterbeach. No rainfall is forecast today but further rain is possible tomorrow. We expect river levels to remain high today and during tomorrow. 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 this afternoon, Friday 15th January, or as the situation changes.
