River Kennet and its tributaries from Berwick Bassett down to Newbury

Flood alert

Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels are high but steady on the River Kennet following a period of sustained rainfall. Therefore, the risk of flooding remains, especially in areas around Hungerford. Some further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours, with the heaviest showers forecast from tomorrow morning 21/06/21. We expect river levels to begin falling from later today 20/06/21, but rivers will remain sensitive to further rainfall. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are in the area carrying out checks in key areas which may pose a flood risk. Please remain safe and aware of your local surroundings, and refer to the 'River and Sea levels in England' webpage for current river levels. This message will be updated tomorrow, 21/06/21, or as the situation changes.
