River Worfe

Flood Alert

River levels remain high and steady at the Burcote river gauge as a result of recent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland continues. Flooding may affect low lying land and roads adjacent to the river from Crackley Bank to Bridgnorth. Other locations that may be affected include Ryton and Burcote. The forecast remains unsettled for the next few days which may cause river levels to remain high. 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 by 9pm, Wednesday 26/02/20 or as the situation changes.
