Flood Warnings for the River Ouzel and Clipstone Brook in Leighton Buzzard were downgraded to a Flood Alert for the area on Sunday evening.

The decision was taken because no significant rainfall is expected until later this week.

On Friday morning, several areas of Leighton Buzzard had been issued with a Flood Warning by the Environment Agency. They were River Ouzel in areas from Leighton Road to Firs Path, plus around Camberton Road, Mardle Road and Mentmore Gardens, and Clipstone Brook in areas from Appenine Way to Lake Street.

The skatepark in Parson’s Recreation Ground was also under water (see Patricia Mellett’s photo).
