ROAD closures and flood warnings remain in place in parts of Oxfordshire this morning. 

Despite days having passed since Storm Dennis brought heavy downpours, river levels are still high in certain areas of the county.

Three flood warnings are still active, advising residents that property flooding is expected:

  • River Ray for Islip - The Environment Agency (EA) states that 'the risk of property flooding remains but is reducing, particularly to Mill Street and Collice Street'
  • River Thames between Newbridge and Kings Lock above Oxford - The EA states that river levels are still high and the risk of property flooding remains, particularly in the areas around Eynsham, but the risk is reducing
  • River Thames for Shiplake, Lower Shiplake and Wargrave - Environment Agency says 'property flooding is possible but no longer expected'

Oxfordshire County Council said as of this morning, these roads remained closed or partially closed: 

  • B4016 Blewbury Road, Didcot
  • Grove Road, Harwell
  • B4445, Chinnor
  • Islip - Lower Street
  • East Hanney to Denchworth - Botany Bridge
  • Woodeaton Road

More than 20 flood alerts, which are less serious than warnings, are also active in Oxfordshire. 

The council has revealed that since Storm Dennis hit on Saturday and Sunday, its highways team dealt with more than 100 weather-related incidents.

Most involved removing large trees or branches that had blocked roads.

Oxford's branch of climate campaign group Extinction Rebellion have been out in the city armed with mops and buckets to make a point.

A spokesperson for the group said: "In sympathy with those badly hit by the floods, Extinction Rebellion Oxford is showing the futility of current government policies by getting out our mops.

"We are heading for a climate catastrophe but the government has chosen to make the situation worse by continuing to build houses on flood plains and destroying ancient woodlands by building a non-porous concrete corridor for HS2.

"Instead we need urgent action to prevent extreme weather events from becoming the new norm.

"The government has declared a climate emergency. They must act now to keep us all safe."
