River levels have now peaked around Bedford, but will remain high for at least another two days, according to the Environment Agency.

On Tuesday the agency warned water levels would continue to rise for another 24-hours, adding to the risk of flooding in the town.

It said minimal rain has now been forecast for the next three days, which should now allow water levels to drop.

However, a flood warning remains in place for the town.

In Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, warnings have also been given for Bromham; Harrold; Odell; Newport Pagnell; Olney; Newton Blossomville; Cople; Willington; Great Barford; Tempsford; Roxton and Wyboston.
