Flood alert latest: Radwell Bridge and Roxton


With the wet weather across Bedford Borough, the Environment Agency and Bedford Borough Council have issued flood updates for the following areas:

  • Radwell Bridge, Radwell Road, has been closed due to flooding.
  • Flooding is expected in Roxton due to raised water levels on the River Great Ouse.

Sections of the river from Roxton to Newport Pagnell are likely to be affected for a few days.

Motorists are advised to:

  • Avoid low lying footpaths near watercourses.
  • Plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers as they may be flooded.
  • Take care when driving through flood water. It can be deeper than you think.
