TWO flood warnings have been issued on the River Ouse at York and Naburn today following more heavy rainfall.

The Environment Agency (EA) has released the warnings for the Ouse between Clifton Bridge and Fulford and at Naburn Lock.

But a spokeswoman, who expected the River Ouse to peak at a height of 8ft 6in above normal today, said they did not expect properties to be flooded.

A flood watch has been issued on rivers and streams in the Vale of York.

The EA spokeswoman said: "We're expected flooding to be restricted to river paths. We will be monitoring the situation closely."
