Wellingborough properties may be hit by flooding

The Environment Agency says up to 40mm of rain during Wednesday has caused river levels to respond significantly, with more rain expected over the next few days.

The Northampton Washland Flood Storage Reservoir is 95% full and they expect it to reach full capacity later today.

Once the Washlands are full, they will then overspill and cause widespread flooding downstream. This will result in flooding of properties near the River Nene in Wellingborough.
