'Be prepared for flooding' says Environment Agency

The flood risk manager of the Environment Agency has warned the public to be prepared for flooding ahead of a forecast of heavy rain.

Katharine Evans, flood risk manager at the Environment Agency, said:

With more heavy rain forecast, it is still as important as ever to be prepared for flooding, keep up to date with the latest warnings and if you are at risk, to move valuable items to safety.

Our teams will continue to work around the clock to protect communities from flooding, and we would urge people to stay safe by not walking or driving through flood water.
