Further Thames flood risk for Surrey and Berkshire

The Environment Agency warns of further Thames floods in the Berkshire and Surrey areas.

Today, warnings remain in place after the river burst its banks earlier this week.

Datchet, Wraysbury and Old Windsor could see water levels rising to near January 2003 levels over the next two days.

River levels on the Thames at Wraysbury, Datchet and Old Windsor are high and continuing to rise in response to recent rainfall.

Flooding of properties closest to the river is expected. River levels will rise further over the next 24 to 36 hours.

River levels will be higher than the November and December 2012 levels and closer to those seen during January 2003.

The Environment Agency will continue to monitor the river and update this message as the situation changes.

The weather prospects are: for a dry night and morning, but further rain tomorrow afternoon.
