FALLING river levels in Ryedale are being closely monitored today in case snow, forecast for this weekend, brings flooding.

The level of the River Derwent now stands at 2.57 metres, while groundwater levels at Broughton borehole were 21.34 metres.

Glyn Payne, North Yorkshire Police’s Scarborough and Ryedale Safer Neighbourhood Commander, said: “We are continuing to keep a close eye on the situation throughout the district and are ready to respond should conditions suddenly worsen.

“Silver Command will remain in place until we are satisfied that the risk of flooding has reduced substantially. Until then, we will be on hand to help and reassure the local community.”
