The Rivers Pant, Blackwater and Brain

Warning no longer in force

River levels are now starting to fall, but remain quite high in some locations, and will be responsive to further rainfall. It will be dry for most of Monday but persistent rainfall will arrive Monday evening and throughout the night and into Tuesday morning. There may still be some areas where flood water is present until it can naturally drain away. Continue to take care on waterside roads and footpaths, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We will continue to monitor levels closely.
