THE Environment Agency has issued a flood warning for the River Arrow at Washford Mill.

It says immediate action is required as water levels have risen as a result of heavy rainfall.

It says: “Consequently, flooding of property, roads and farmland is expected imminently.

“Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours.

“Please avoid using low lying footpaths and bridges near local watercourses and stay aware in case further warnings are issued.”

The Agency has also issued a flood alert for the River Alne and the Arrow further down stream.

It says: “Flooding is affecting low-lying land and roads adjacent to the River Arrow between Studley and Salford Priors and the River Alne between Bird in Hand and Alcester including farmland and caravan parks.

“Our incident response staff are checking defences and clearing weed screens.”
