Flooding update from the Northamptonshire Local Resilience Forum

The multi-agency response to flooding on Billing Aquadrome concluded last night and all emergency services were stood down at around 9.20pm (3 January).

The potential for flooding continues to be a concern in Northamptonshire and whilst the rain may have eased today, water levels may not have peaked and there is likely to be further flood disruption over the coming days.

Further rainfall is predicted in Northamptonshire later this evening (4 January) and residents across Northamptonshire and particularly those who live close to waterways are being urged to continue to follow safety advice around flood water. The rivers Nene, Tove and Great River Ouse continue to swell and will likely lead to a further increase in water levels and localised flooding.

Roads may appear to be clear, but the conditions could deteriorate again as these water levels rise. Motorists are encouraged to avoid driving through flood water and leave additional time for their journeys.

Northamptonshire’s Local Resilience Forum partners are continuing to meet daily as they work to manage the situation, to monitor the weather and flooding risk across the county and continue to implement plans to keep the county safe.
