In preparation of the expected river level rise as a result of heavy rainfall, we are issuing this alert mainly for the Masham Swinney Beck area. Consequently, flooding of property/roads and farmland is possible from 07:45. Areas most at risk are low lying land and roads. Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point, though due to saturated catchments river levels may react quickly. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded.
Some roads are still flooded with the fire service insisting you find an alternative route.
