ANOTHER area of Oxfordshire has been put on flood alert.
Groundwater flooding is possible in the Oxfordshire and Berkshire border area of West Ilsley, East Ilsley, Compton, Chilton and West Hagbourne after a flood alert was issued for the area.
This means the Environment Agency is warning residents to be prepared, but there is no damage to property expected.
The agency say that groundwater levels are high because of the “exceptional” rainfall the county has experienced in the last few weeks.
The Met Office says there is likely to be heavy rain later today and this will continue tomorrow evening.
Flood alerts remain in place for many places across the county, including Abingdon, Woodstock and areas of Oxford including Jericho and Wantage.
