Flood warnings in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire

Flood warnings have been issued in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire by the Environment Agency after heavy rain.

A number of properties along the river at Newport Pagnell had flooded and some homes are expected to flood in Olney and Newton Blossomville, it said.

Warnings have also been put in place along the Great Ouse from Bedford to Offord and at Buckingham.

The agency said more rain is expected across the counties in the next 48 hours which could raise river levels.

It is asking people to check the Environment Agency website for updates.
