    Finally, a third warning is in place for low lying areas close to the River Great Ouse and River Ouzel at Newport Pagnell.

    Forecasters expect flooding to affect Caldecote Lane, Willen Road, River Side, Toll House, Woad Farm, Sherington Road and Gallards Farm in Newport Pagnell, and Ravenstone Mill in Ravenstone.

    An Environment Agency spokesperson said: "Further rainfall is forecast throughout this morning which may result in river levels rising again and remaining high over the weekend. We are closely monitoring the situation."
