First flood warning in Oxfordshire as protective barriers go up
FLOOD defences being put up in Osney Island this morning are a "precaution", say the Environment Agency.
The agency has also issued its first flood warning in Oxfordshire - which means that flooding is expected - at the River Thames from Shiplake to Bolney Court near Henley including Lower Shiplake and Wargrave.
However, the number of flood alerts in the county has been reduced overnight from 19 to 13.
Flood alerts mean flooding is possible.
Further downpoars are forecast by the MET Office again for today and tomorrow.
The following waterways are on flood alert:
Clanfield Brook for Clanfield Village and the Shill Brook for Bampton
River Cherwell from Lower Heyford down to and including Oxford
River Cole and Dorcan Brook
River Ock from Watchfield to Abingdon, and also the Letcombe Brook at Wantage, Grove and East Hanney
River Thames and tributaries in the Oxford area
River Thames for the Abingdon Area Lower
River Loddon at the River Thames confluence at Twyford
River Thames for Shiplake, Lower Shiplake and Wargrave
River Thame and Chalgrove Brook
River Thames for Henley, Remenham, Medmenham and its tributaries
River Evenlode from Moreton in Marsh to Cassington and also the River Glyme at Wootton and Woodstock
River Windrush from Bourton to Newbridge River Thames and its tributaries from Days Lock to above Pangbourne
