Flood warnings have been issued across Cambridgeshire, including the River Great Ouse from Brampton to Earith and in Ramsey, following persistent heavy rainfall.

Nineteen flood alerts have been published by the Environment Agency (EA) today (March 10) after the recent heavy rainfall has caused water levels to rise considerably to high levels.

Of the 101 rivers in Cambridgeshire, 39 are recorded as 'high' with further heavy rainfall forecast over the next 24 hours.

A spokesperson for the EA said: "We are closely monitoring the situation.

"Our incident response staff are checking defences. Please avoid contact with flood water."

The EA say flooding is possible for River Great Ouse from Brampton to Earith, including Back Brook, Hall Green Brook, Parsons Drove Drain, Swavesey Drain and Wadsbys Folly.

River levels have risen at the Offord river gauge to 0.92 metres, 0.25 meters above the top of the 'normal' reading of 0.67m.

Consequently, flooding of property, roads, and farmland is possible today (March 10).

Possible flooding is also affecting Alconbury Brook at Hamerton, The Alconburys, Little Stukeley, the Brampton Bury Brook from Abbots Ripton to Ramsey and the Ellington Brook at Spaldwick, Ellington and Brampton.

The Met Office has also enforced a yellow weather warning for most areas in Cambridgeshire, including Huntingdon and Ely.
