The Advertiser and Review region is expected to remain on high alert over the weekend as heavy rain is predicted.

Residents are being urged to remain vigilant and prepare for further flooding with rainfall predicted across the south east tomorrow, Saturday.

A flood warning remains in place for River Cherwell from Lower Heyford down to Cherwell Bridge, and flood alerts are in place for the River Cherwell from Lower Heyford, down to and including Oxford, and from Charwelton to just above Upper Heyford.

Flood warnings also remain in place for the River Great Ouse at Buckingham and East Brackley, with a flood alert for the River Tove, near Towcester.

Further rainfall is expected across much of the South East later tomorrow, Saturday, with up to 20mm forecast in some areas. And river levels are continuing to rise in some areas in response to last night’s rainfall.

River levels have fallen slightly in Buckingham and the Cornwall’s Meadow car park reopened today, Friday, after it was closed by Aylesbury Vale District Council yesterday, Thursday.

The council will be carrying out car park inspections tomorrow and Sunday morning.
