A Flood Alert has been issued by the Environment Agency.
Flood Alert in force: Lower River Great Ouse in Central Bedfordshire, Bedford Borough and Cambridgeshire.
Flooding is possible for: Lower River Great Ouse from Wyboston to Earith including Hen and Fox Brooks, Brampton Brook, Back Brook, Hall Green Brook, Parsons Drove Drain, Swavesey Drain and Wadsbys Folly.
This message has been issued due to the heavy rain experienced on Tuesday 26th December and Wednesday 27th December over the Great Ouse Catchment. This means that the river levels in the River Great Ouse remain high as water travels down the catchment.
The forecast is for patchy showers today and over the weekend. We are expecting river levels to remain high over the weekend.
Locations most at risk are River Great Ouse from Wyboston to Earith including Hen and Fox Brooks, Brampton Brook, Back Brook, Hall Green Brook, Parsons Drove Drain, Swavesey Drain and Wadsbys Folly.
The Environment Agency are monitoring river levels and have staff in the field checking for and clearing blockages.
Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions.
Take care on riverside roads and footpaths.

What you should consider doing now
* Monitor local water levels and weather conditions.
* Get ready to act on your flood plan if you have one.
* Move your car or other vehicles to higher ground, if it is safe to do so.
* Prepare a flood kit of essential items including a torch with spare batteries, mobile phone and charger, warm clothes, home insurance documents, water, food, first aid kit and any prescription medicines or baby care items you may need.
* Check that you know how to turn off your gas, electricity and water mains supplies.
* In rural locations, farmers should consider moving livestock and equipment away from areas likely to flood.
* Avoid walking, cycling or driving through flood water. 30 cm of fast-flowing water can move a car and 6 inches can knock an adult off their feet.
* Flood water is dangerous and may be polluted. Wash your hands thoroughly if you’ve been in contact with it.
