FLOOD waters may be subsiding but several roads across Oxfordshire remain closed and some waterways are still on red alert.

The River Thames and its tributaries at New Botley, New and North Hinksey and Grandpont in Oxford and the River Thames from Days Lock down to South Stoke remain the only waterways in the county to be on flood warning.

This means flooding is expected and residents are recommended to take immediate action.

However the water level at Iffley Lock in Oxford had last night gone down to 0.44m – a reduction of almost 50 per cent from late last week.

Several roads remained closed last night including Binsey Lane in Oxford and the Wytham to Wolvercote road.

Also closed were Lower Road in Islip, the road from Clifton Hampden to Long Wittenham, the link road from the A34 to South Hinksey village, Great Brook Road from Buckland Road to Chimney near Aston, the B478 at Playhatch, the B4009 Chinnor Road at Aston Rowant and the road from A329 to Drayton St Leonard.

Met Office forecasts show today will be cloudy with light rain later this evening, though tomorrow there will be light rain for most of the day.
