River levels remain high but are falling slowly at the Butts Bridge and Byton river gauges. The risk of flooding remains. Flooding is affecting low lying land and roads adjacent to the River Lugg north of Leominster. Locations that may be affected include Yarpole, Mortimers Cross, Kingsland and the B4362. Further heavy rainfall is expected over the next 48 hours, which may cause river levels to rise again. We expect river levels to remain high over the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated by 8pm on Thursday 20/02/20, or as the situation changes.
