THE number of flood alerts in Oxfordshire has reduced overnight from 23 to 19.

But river levels on the Thames - which is on flood alert - are expected to rise today with continued heavy rain.

The River Ock from Watchfield to Abingdon and the River Cherwell and its tributaries are among the waterways on alert in the county.

The Environment Agency has issued no flood warnings in Oxfordshire.

Flood alerts mean flooding is possible while warnings mean flooding is expected.

More heavy rain is expected tomorrow and on Monday.

Motorists are being warned there is flooding reported on the B4022 near Wood Lane near to the Bird In Hand in Hailey.
