The River Thames has burst its banks in Christchurch Meadows, Caversham flooding the footpaths.

Flooding is also causing problems on the A329 in Winnersh by the Showcase Cinema roundabout which is closed to traffic coming into Reading.

Rushey Way is also closed in both directions between the roundabout and the junction with Mill Lane.

The Loddon Bridge Park & Ride is closed.

There are flood warnings in place on the River Thames at Pangbourne and Purley and from Scours Lane to Caversham Lakes and on the River Kennet from Theale to Reading.

There are also flood warnings on the River Loddon at Lower Earley, Winnersh, Woodley, Twyford, Charvil and Wargrave.

The Environment Agency say the Thames in the Reading area has risen in response to rainfall earlier in the week. Levels will continue to rise and property flooding is to be expected. The current river forecast suggests that by the middle of next week the river in this area could reach a similar level to January 2003.

A largely dry day is forecast by the Met Office tomorrow but more rain is expected to Tuesday and a yellow severe weather warning is still in place.
