Rain over the weekend, combined with forecast wet weather for much of this week, means a close watch is being kept on the river.

It flows through Wanstead, Woodford and Ilford and in 2000 it burst its banks, flooding around 1,000 homes.

• If you live close to the River Roding and experience any flooding, contact the Recorder on 020 8477 3800 or email newsdesk@ilfordrecorder.co.uk.
