A number of flood alerts have been issued across Surrey on Monday (January 9) as the county’s rivers struggle with heavy rain. A total of six rivers have been given alerts as of 8am with the Environment Agency telling people to “be prepared” for potential flooding in these areas.

It follows heavy rain which fell in Surrey on Sunday (January 8) and has led to river levels rising. With further showers experienced earlier on Monday, flooding in low-lying roads and footpaths are "expected" in many of the areas affected which include Guildford, Camberley and Dorking.

At four of the affected rivers, the River Blackwater, Upper River Wey and Chertsey Bourne, the Environment Agency says incident response staff were at the scene clearing weed and trash screens. Residents living around these areas are also being told to “remain safe and aware” of their surroundings.
