Video: Flooding traffic chaos continues
Published 10/01/14



THAMES SIDE in Henley was partially re-opened to traffic today but floods continued to disrupt roads throughout the area.

Click here to watch our video report showing some of the worst affected areas of this week's downpours.

Playhatch Road, between Sonning and Playhatch, and Remenham Lane remained closed.

The Environment Agency said Sonning could experience further flooding over the weekend as water continues to flow downstream.

Howard Davidson, director for the south east, said it will be paying close attention to parts of the River Thames below Abingdon.

“We are expecting that many more properties will flood over the next two to three days but there is still time for people to take appropriate action.”

Thames Side is closed by Hobbs but is open for access via Friday Street.

The closures have caused traffic congestion on roads coming into Henley and last night there were queues stretching back up Remenham Hill.

The River and Rowing Museum, the Angel on the Bridge pub and the Shaun Dickens restaurant, which has been flooded, are all closed.

Flood warnings issued by the Environment Agency are still in place for Henley, Shiplake, Wargrave, Caversham, Playhatch, Sonning, Mapledurham, Goring, Whitchurch, Hurley and Medmenham.

There have been reports of property flooding in Wargrave and Shiplake following days of torrential rain, which has led to some of the highest river levels in recent years.

River levels in Henley were expected to reach their peak today.

Temperatures dropped overnight and there was a frost. The Met Office forecasts rain tonight but the weekend should be mainly dry.
