Flood warning for Eastern Yar

By Emily Pearce

Sunday, January 26, 2014


A FLOOD warning for the Eastern Yar will remain in force until at least midday tomorrow (Monday).

Following further rainfall across the Isle of Wight today, areas in Alverstone, Langbridge and Horringford could be affected, as could Golf Links Road and Morton Common Road, near Brading.

However, the risk of flooding to property is low, according to the Environment Agency.

For information and advice, call the Environment Agency's Floodline on 0845 988 1188.

Due to low temperatures this evening, Island Roads will be gritting roads from 8pm. Drivers are urged to take care.
