Flood warning issued for River Ouse near Sharpesbridge

A flood warning has been issued for the River Ouse from Freshfield Bridge to Sharpesbridge, including Sheffield Park Station and Fletching Mill in East Sussex.

The Environment Agency said river levels were still rising through the middle Ouse, particularly in the Freshfield Bridge area.

Levels in the upper catchment have now peaked, but that water will still have to make its way down the watercourse, causing river levels to rise further through Freshfield Bridge and Sharpesbridge this afternoon, before falling again overnight. Properties mainly at risk include The Millers, Freshfield Mill and Bridge Cottage.
