A statement says: "Over the last 36 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the River Glen and Bourne Eau area as a result of Storm Dennis. This means that levels in the River Glen and Bourne Eau have risen, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the rivers.

"We expect the rivers to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued.

"Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens."
