Flood Warning for the River Rea at Stirchley, including Cartland Road and Dogpool Lane areas, the Avenues and Sir Johns Road


The environment agency have issued a flood warning for  the River Rea at Stirchley. At present there are no reports of property flooding from watercourses, but properties may be at risk.


The Environment Agency is warning residents to stay vigilant over the next few days as heavy rain falls and makes its way through the river systems. We have advised the public to stay away from swollen rivers and not to drive through floodwater.
