HEAVY rain led to rivers bursting their banks and a number of roads being closed in Huntingdonshire over the weekend.

Residents of Kings Ripton, Ramsey, Kimbolton and Great Staughton were warned to prepare for the worst when the River Kym burst its banks overnight on Saturday, March 15.

The Environment Agency warned of severe flooding, but on Monday, Cambridgeshire police said it had not received any reports of homes being flooded.

However, the rising water caused the closure of the B660 between Stonely and Tilbrook, and the Hamerton Road in Alconbury Weston.
