Flood warnings are still in place for the River Nene in Northamptonshire.

The Enviroment Agency has a flood alert in place for the River Nene at Billing Aquadrome and nearby business parks including the Riverside Business Park and Crow Lane Industrial Estate.

The agency also has a flood warning for low-lying undefended areas of the River Nene between Daventry and Billing. Its warning added: “Tributaries may also affect Daventry, Weedon, Badby, Nether Heyford, Bugbrooke, Blisworth, Collingtree, and Moulton.”

Paul Mustow, Flood Risk manager at the Environment Agency, said: “We’re preparing for yet more heavy rain, which is falling on already saturated ground following the wettest January on record.

“We urge people to stay safe and not to walk or drive through flood water which can be dangerous.”
