There is flooding in the centre of Durham, on the Framwellgate Waterside footpath and on the riverbank paths next to Milburngate Bridge.

The Wear burst its banks in the city centre at around 8pm.
The Environment Agency says the river levels there are rising significantly, and that property flooding is likely from 10pm.

More heavy rain is expected overnight, so river levels in the city will remain high.
