The River Ribble had a flood warning in force once more covering the stretch from Samlesbury to Walton-le-Dale.


Environment Agency teams had been monitoring the water levels due to heavy and consistent rain throughout Saturday.

The Ribble has been placed on floor alert for the last few weekends, with the Brockholes Nature Reserve regularly being closed due to a risk of flooding.

Dramatic footage showed the height of the Ribble last Saturday and Sunday as it swelled due to heavy rainfall.

The Environment Agency issued the warning on Saturday afternoon and it remained in force until mid-morning on Sunday.
