Environment Agency: 'More than 1,000 homes in Barnet remain at risk of flooding'
8:50am Friday 21st February 2014 in News
Environment Agency figures show 1,136 homes in Barnet remain at risk of flooding despite forecasts predicting the weather will improve this weekend.
Barnet has the third highest number of homes at risk across the capital, though Barnet Borough Council has had to deal with just four reports of flooding the past three weeks.
The agency says the River Brent, Dollis Brook and Silk Stream all remain at risk of overflowing, but with sunshine forecast today and Saturday, that risk is likely to subside.
Barnet Council says it has dealt with reports of flooding in Mill Hill, East Finchley, and Colindale, but that no properties were affected.
