After three days of rising waters along the River Great Ouse, the Environment Agency has lifted the severe flood warning.
While river levels are expected to remain high over coming days, the Environment Agency has said they are not expecting levels like those that have been seen On Christmas Day and yesterday (Boxing Day).
Bedford Borough Council has now stood down the emergency assistance centre at Bedford International Athletic Stadium, while the centre at Bromham Village Hall was stood down the day before.
While not severe, flood warnings still remain in place for the River Great Ouse at:
- Great Barford
- Milton Ernest
Even so, officers are still out monitoring water levels and activity on the river and Bedfordians are urged to stay vigilant, monitor the flood warnings, and stay prepared.
A council spokesperson said: “If your property is at risk of flooding and there is a threat to life, please call 999 and ask for Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue.
“If you need assistance, there is support and advice available via the Council’s flood line on 01234 718007.”
