FOURTEEN waterways in Oxfordshire were on flood alert last night after the weekend’s heavy rainfall.

This means the Environment Agency is warning residents to be prepared as flooding is possible.

However there are no rivers in Oxfordshire on flood warning, which means flooding is expected. Met Office predictions show there is likely to be heavy rain later today and this will continue into tomorrow.

Those rivers on flood alert include: The River Ock from Watchfield to Abingdon including Stanford in the Vale, Charney Bassett, Lyford and Garford, and also the Letcombe Brook at Wantage, Grove and East Hanney The River Cherwell from Lower Heyford down to and including Oxford, Thrupp, Hampton Poyle and Rousham The River Evenlode from Moreton in Marsh to Cassington including Kingham, Bledington, Milton under Wychwood, Shipton under Wychwood, Ascott under Wychwood, Charlbury, Fawler and Long Hanborough and also the River Glyme at Wootton and Woodstock Ginge Brook for the Steventon area down to and including Sutton Courtenay The River Thames for the Abingdon area, including areas between Abingdon down to and including Little Wittenham The River Thames and its tributaries in the Oxford area including areas between Wolvercote down to and including Radley and Jericho The River Windrush from Bourton to Newbridge including Burford, Asthall, Minster Lovell, Crawley, Witney, Ducklington, Rack End and Standlake
