The Environment Agency has issued a Flood Warning for the River Frome at Bishops Frome.

Flooding is expected – immediate action required

River levels have risen at the Bishops Frome river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads, property and farmland is possible today Saturday, 30/01/21. Flooding may affect properties off the A4103. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high over the weekend. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 6pm on Saturday 30/01/21, or as the situation changes.
