Flood alerts and weather warning

THERE is no end in site to the flooding which has hit the Midhurst area in the last few weeks.

Flood alerts remain for the River Lavant as well as West Dean, Singleton, Charlton, East Dean and Chilgrove.

What’s more, the Met Office has released a weather warning for ice, as temperatures are set to fall below freezing in the early hours of tomorrow morning (January 10).

“Surface temperatures will fall to around or just below freezing late on Thursday night into Friday morning across parts of England and Wales,” said a Met Office spokesman.

“With a lot of standing water present in many areas from the recent wet weather and flooding icy stretches are expected to form, particularly on untreated surfaces.

“The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel on the roads.”
