      Flood Warnings

      There is a continued risk of river and surface water flooding today (Tuesday) across northeast England, north Wales and Northamptonshire.
      Although the weather forecast is improving, further property flooding and disruption is possible across the country as river and groundwater levels are set to peak in the next 48 hours. Large, slow responding rivers, including the Thames, Trent and the Severn, are particularly at risk.
      Latest figures show that approximately 960 properties have flooded since Wednesday and we have sent 110,000 warnings to people at risk of flooding. Flood defences have protected almost 55,000 properties across England and Wales. Parts of the new 45m defence scheme in Nottingham, opened in September, have been put into action for the first time.
      Our teams continue to work around the clock to shore up defences, monitor river levels and clear blockages from watercourses.
