  • Service 50 - will not be able to serve Radwell and Felmersham and will divert through Milton Ernest on into Sharnbrook.
  • Service 25 - will not be able to serve Harrold and will only serve as far as Carlton.
  • Service 51 - will divert through Lavendon and Turvey although will continue to serve Harrold and Carlton.

Teams from Bedford Borough Council are monitoring water levels and inspecting bridges, but they remain open at present.
