Reading Flood Advice

Last updated at 05:00 30/11/2012

The Environment Agency have issued a Flood Warning for the River Thames at Reading. Water levels on the river are rising slowly and will probably continue to do so for the next few days. It is possible that properties close to the river could flood and householders and businesses that are liable to flooding should consider taking action to protect their properties.

The council will prioritise help for people who are considered to be most vulnerable, and council officers will be calling on people in this group to provide reassurance and assistance as required. Householders may wish to make their own flood-protection arrangements and sandbags may be available to purchase at building suppliers.

Sandbags are currently being deployed to the following areas;
Deans Farm, Mill Green, Nire Road, Piggotts Road, Amersham Road, Send Road, Honey Meadow Close, Rhine Close, Ian Mikardo Way, Managua Close, The Causeway, Mill Road, Paddock Road.
