Flooding and strong winds are expected this weekend and the Environment Agency has warned people to take precautions.

Anyone who lives in an area susceptible to flooding has been encouraged to think of things they can do to prevent damage to their property with heavy and sustained rain and winds forecast in the south-east this weekend.

David Bedlington, regional flood and coastal risk manager for the Environment Agency, said: "With more unsettled weather forecast for the South East, following recent heavy rainfall, there could be a lot of water in low-lying lands and on roads.

"Those who live in an area vulnerable to flooding should think about the precautions they can take to limit the damage a flood can cause to themselves and their property.

"Be prepared: check the Environment Agency website for the latest situation and advice."

Never mind Anne - looking at the environment agency map there is a HIGH risk of flooding in the road we lived in for 30 years and never had flooding EVER. Probably no need to take your furniture upstairs.
Your road is only marked in pale blue - LOW risk - and only along the road, not the houses either side.
