River levels to be monitored during heavy weather

River levels are being monitored by the Royal Borough as heavy weather continues to hit the region.

Flood alerts were issued for much of the region following last week's storms and levels in the River Thames have remained high after wet weather continued beyond Christmas.

Several alerts have remained in force, but the Environment Agency has said level have started to drop slowly.

More rain is forecast for New Year's Day but the borough said it has 'robust plans' in place to deal with any emergency incident.

A spokeswoman said: "We will continue monitor the weather and river levels and to work with our professional partners over the holiday period as we have done throughout the Christmas period.

"We are in a strong position to respond to any genuine need or emergency that our residents may require."

A spokesman for Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) said crews will also remain on alert throughout the period and be ready to clear fallen trees and surface water on roads throughout the county.

No flood warnings are in place for the county.
