Flooded Roads 01
Stormy weather 04

Given the extended spell of gusting winds and heavy rain that we have been experiencing of late, Bucks County Council have issued the following news update:

Minor flooding affected 11 roads throughout Buckinghamshire during the wet and windy weekend, keeping Transport for Buckinghamshire's (TfB) emergency crews and teams of gulley emptiers busy clearing surface water and three fallen trees.

Of the 42 emergency call-outs, 10 were to flood sites in Aylesbury Vale District, one to a flood in Chiltern District, and three to trees affecting roads in Chiltern District. Other call-outs were to three diesel spills, flytipping and potholes.

Since the beginning of Christmas week, crews have cleared more than 120 fallen trees and dealt with flooding on 81 roads.

With forecasts continuing to predict squally showers and gusts of around 60mph, all TfB crews remain on standby to keep the roads throughout Buckinghamshire as clear and safe as possible.

A Flood Warning has been issued by the Environment Agency (EA) for the properties closest to the River Thames from All Saints Church, Bisham, to Little Marlow. Flooding is expected to affect up to 20 properties in this area.

River levels are continuing to rise on the River Thames following the recent rainfall, and will continue to rise for the next 24 hours, say the EA.

The Met Office forecasts heavy showers overnight tonight and through Tuesday.
