River Rosing water levels begin to fall

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: The River Roding in Woodford Green on Thursday The River Roding in Woodford Green on Thursday

Water levels on the Lower River Roding have begun to fall after several days of heavy rain caused a flood alert.

The river remains on flood alert but dry weather last night meant water levels have now begun to fall.

The alert was issued on Wednesday night and warned that low-lying land, roads and gardens were likely to flood in areas including Wanstead, South Woodford, Woodford Green, Ilford, East Ham and Barking.

The Environment Agency is monitoring the situation.

Dredging is being hyped up, let nature take its course?

I wager there will still be a hose pip ban in the summer knowing Thames Watre.
