River levels begin to recede in Royal Borough

The Royal Borough has said river levels are now 'down slightly' as it continues to monitor the situation amidst the threat of continued flooding.

Cookham Moor remains closed for the third day today while The Causeway is still only accessible to pedestrians and emergency vehicles.

Thames Water has also issued advice to people enduring flooding and drainage problems caused by the recent wet weather.

A statement from the water company said its 109,000km network of sewers across London and the Thames Valley is operating as it should be but is struggling to cope with the large volumes of water.

Natalie Beckerman, the company's customer service director, said the company was currently receiving a high level of calls from customers and is trying to prioritise people most in need of help.

The Environment Agency is continuing to provide updates via its website, text and email alerts, and its designated Floodline on 0845 988 1188.
