Flood alert for River Frome from Chipping Sodbury to Bristol

The Environment Agency has issued a Flood Warning Alert for the River Frome and tributaries between Chipping Sodbury and Bristol Floating Harbour.

There is already localised flooding on minor roads in our areas - the Ruffet Road/Coalsack Lane junction, for example - so be prepared for your journey to work to take longer on some routes.

For further updates, keep an eye on the Environment Agency website. You can find lots of other useful information there too about preparing for flooding and can sign up to the Flood Warnings Direct service.

Update Friday 14/01/2011: It's been pointed out that we should have referred to a flood alert rather than warning - an alert is less serious (though there was in fact a flood warning at one point from Nibley down to Bristol). The flood alert is still in force as at 0845 today.
