Flood alert

River levels have risen at the Walcot river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is expected. We expect flooding to affect low lying land and roads adjacent to the river from Wolverley to Newport. Other locations that may be affected include Market Drayton, Wem and Rodington. Further rainfall is forecast over the next few days. We expect river levels to remain high over the weekend. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths and bridges near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 10:00am Sunday 10/12/23, or as the situation changes.
