The Environment Agency has issued further flood alerts in the Anglia region as the wet start to January continues.

Flood warnings

A flood warning means flooding is expected and immediate action required

  • Cambridgeshire: North Bank Road alongside the River Nene to the east of Peterborough and the West of the Dog-in-a-Doublet Sluice

"Heavy rain over the past few days has caused river levels to rise on the River Nene.

"During periods of high tide the river will be unable to discharge into the sea, resulting in tide lock conditions.

"This is likely to lead to localised flooding at North Bank Road. Whilst the Flood Warning is in force, the Local Authority will close North Bank Road. Diversionary routes will be put in place and further updates will be available through local media."
