Flooding is possible - be prepared

Flood alert for River Pang from East Ilsley to Pangbourne and Sulham Brook

Property flooding is not currently expected.

River levels are high but falling on the River Pang and the Sulham Brook following recent rainfall. Flooding of low lying land and roads is expected to continue through today and overnight, 4 March 2024.

This morning is forecast to be mainly dry, followed by light rainfall this afternoon and into this evening. River levels are expected to continue slowly falling but will remain high over the coming days, partly as a result of high groundwater levels. Levels will remain sensitive to rainfall.

We are monitoring the situation. Beware of water remaining on the floodplain as river levels recede. Avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. Go to the 'River and Sea levels in England' webpage for current river levels.

This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 5 March 2024, or as the situation changes.

Flood alert area: River Pang from East Ilsley to Pangbourne, including Compton, Hampstead Norreys, Frilsham, Bucklebury, Stanford Dingley, Bradfield and Tidmarsh; and the Sulham Brook from Theale to Pangbourne including Sulham.
