Flood warnings have been issued for four rivers across Sussex as rain continues to hit the area.

The warnings, issued by the government, suggest that flooding is possible after rising water levels overnight and this morning.

The river warnings have come as a yellow weather warning has been issued for parts of Sussex this evening and is expected to last until the morning of Thursday, November 16.

The affected rivers in Sussex include the Ouse, Cuckmere, Uck and Upper River Adur.

In information on the River Uck, the government website reads: “flooding could affect fields, rural roads, gardens and approach riverside properties through Buxted”.

River levels are expected to ease, however, through to Thursday afternoon.

Near the River Ouse, warnings have been given that Barcombe Mills Road may become “impassable”.

Following 20mm of rain on Tuesday, November 15, the river is reported to be “high and rising between Scayne’s Hill and Barcombe”.

The flood alerts come after previously flooding last week which affected a number of sites across Sussex.

In recent weeks, Barcombe Mills Road and Alfriston have both been pictured with flooded fields and roads.

Updates on the flood alerts are expected on the government’s website throughout the day.
