River levels have risen at the Walton river gauge as a result of persistent heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is expected this morning. Further light rainfall is forecast today. We expect river levels to remain high until this afternoon on 13/12/19. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are actively checking river levels and the weather forecast. Please avoid using low lying footpaths and bridges near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. A Flood Warning has already been issued for the River Dene at Walton. This message will be updated in 8 hours, or as the situation changes.
