Heavy overnight rain prolonging risk of more flooding

As heavy rain fell overnight, the risk of more flooding across the region has increased.

The Met Office estimated up to 40mm of rain fell last night, with 37 flood warnings in place along the Rivers Thames and Kennet.

Disruption on roads is still ongoing for people and Dorset and Oxfordshire.

Some routes which have been underwater for days, like Botley Road in Oxford, have now reopened as clean up operations continued this weekend.
