We are removing this flood warning as river levels have now fallen below levels of concern. However, there is more rain expected later today (Wednesday 19/02/20) which might cause river levels to rise again. We continue to monitor the situation and will issue flood warnings if required. Please continue to check river levels on the gov.uk website and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses.
