Heavy rain has been seen across Cambridgeshire today, which has caused Bourges Boulevard to flood once again.

In response to the downpours, the Environmental Agency has issued flood alerts for several areas around Peterborough.

This is the lowest level of alert and means that flooding is possible.

These areas include Ramsey, Sawtry, Stamford and Bourne.

The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning for ice which is in effect across most of England and Scotland, including Peterborough, between Thursday and Friday (January 14-15).
