Harrold and Oakley: flood alerts issued


Residents are being advised to avoid low lying footpaths and roads near bridges in Harrold, Oakley, Felmersham and Radwell due to flood risks.

A flood alert for the River Great Ouse has been issued for the roads between Harrold and Oakley.

It comes a year after flooding devastated many areas in Bedfordshire last Christmas.

Flooding is possible and may affect roads close to the bridges at Harrold, Oakley, Felmersham and Radwell.

A statement from Bedford Borough Council said: “Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded.”
