Ten flood alerts were issued to residents in Oxfordshire by the Environment Agency on Tuesday.

A flood alert means that flooding is possible and residents should be prepared.

River levels remain high on the River Thames at Culham with some standing water in the flood plain.

A spokesman said river levels would respond to the recent rain and people should keep checking the Environment Agency flood warnings website .

The nine rivers where the flood alerts were in place were the Evenlode, Glyme, Thames, Cherwell, Ock, Chalgrove Brook, Letcombe Brook, Ray, Ginge Brook.

The town of Thame was also on flood alert including areas down to and including Little Wittenham.

River levels are still high on the River Cherwell in the Heyford Bridge and Thrupp areas.
