Businesses flooded as rain keeps falling

BUSINESSES and residents were hit by flooding over the holiday period — and there’s more rain on the way.

Flood alerts have been in place in some areas since Christmas Eve and levels of the River Thames are expected to rise further with more wet weather forecast over the next few days.

Some businesses were forced to close temporarily following widespread flooding on low-lying land in Henley, Shiplake, Wargrave and Sonning.

The car park of the Flowing Spring near Playhatch has been underwater for more than a week.

Nick Willson, who runs the pub with his partner Hazel Lucas, woke up on Christmas Day to find 3ft of water had flooded the car park for the second year running.
