Eight flood alerts have been put in place across Berkshire following heavy rain.

At 5pm on December 31, 2023, the Environment Agency issued a flood alert for the River Pang from East Ilsley to Pangbourne and Sulham Brook.

While properties are said to not be at risk, rising river levels put down to heavy rain.

Advice given includes: "Avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses."

River Kennet from Thatcham down to Reading and the River Thames from Mapledurham to Sonning have also seen a flood warning put in place by the Environment Agency on December 31.

A further four flood alerts have been enacted today (January 1, 2024).

These include the River Thames from Pangbourne to Purley where "flooding of low-lying land and roads is expected this afternoon" and is estimated to continue over the next few days.

River Thames for Shiplake, Lower Shiplake and Wargrave, as well as Henley, Remenham, Medmenham and its tributaries, are also covered by flood alerts.

Hurley and Cookham on the River Thames have also been warned of flooding.

The Environment Agency said: "We are closely monitoring the situation. Please remain safe and aware of your local surroundings."
