Flooding misery for businesses

NEW year floods brought misery to residents, businesses and drivers.

Days of torrential rain and even hail led to some of the highest levels of the Thames seen in recent years, leading to widespread flooding in low-lying areas.

Flood warnings were issued to communities all along the river including Henley, Shiplake, Wargrave, Caversham, Playhatch, Sonning, Mapledurham, Goring, Whitchurch, Hurley and Medmenham.

The Environment Agency said the water was expected to reach its peak on Friday as it continues to flow downstream and rain is still falling.
