Latest update: River Roding flood risk set to increase with heavy rain predicted
The River Roding is continuing to rise very slowly posing a risk of flooding to low-lying land, roads and gardens, the Environment Agency says.
Surface water flooding from the river, which runs through Redbridge, can be expected in some locations.
The predicted heavy rain on Friday (31) afternoon is expected to increase the flood risk yet further.
The Environment Agency said it would continue to monitor the situation closely.
Another update will be given by the agency this evening.
