THE Environment Agency this afternoon put out a flood alert notice for the River Cherwell and its tributaries through Cropredy, Banbury and Kings Sutton as far as Upper Heyford.

The warning means flooding of low-lying land adjacent to the river is expected but properties are not in danger at this stage.

Flood alerts have already been issued for the rivers Ock, Ray and Thame and the Chalgrove Brook and Letcombe Brook around Wantage and Grove.
