The Environment Agency has issued an update saying that flood levels could reach 4.5 metres by Monday afternoon.

They are not expected to reach 2012 levels.

The flood warnings for the River Ouse at York riverside properties and St George’s Field remain in force due to rising levels on the Ouse in response to rain in the upper catchments.
