Heavy rainfall on Wednesday 17 May

Rain is falling heavily in parts of Leicestershire.

No flood warnings have been issued, but you could find some surface water that makes travelling conditions difficult.

Please take extra care on the roads as surface water could cause a problem.

Flood advice 

If you are concerned about flooding, please follow advice from the Environment Agency

  • Be prepared for the risk of flooding and check your flood risk on the Government's website or call Floodline for advice on 0345 988 1188
  • Stay away from swollen rivers and flood water
  • Do not drive through flood water: just 30cm of flowing water is enough to move your car
  • Environment Agency teams are closely monitoring river levels and are working hard to reduce flood risk by checking and maintaining flood defences, clearing blockages in watercourses and monitoring water levels. 


If your home is at immediate risk of flooding, we have a limited number of sandbags available for collection at our Linden Way depot in Coalville (postcode LE67 3JY) from Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm only.

Please only collect the number of sandbags you need.
