River levels are rising at the Wedderburn Bridge river gauge as a result of recent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible. We expect flooding to affect low lying land and roads adjacent to the River Leadon. Locations that may be affected include Ledbury, Much Marcle, Staunton and Tibberton. Water may be out of bank at Upleadon Court. Further rainfall is forecast over the weekend. Consequently, we expect river levels to remain high for the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are clearing weed screens and checking defences. 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 by 5pm on 29/02/2020, or as the situation changes.
