RESIDENTS around the River Dee from Whitchurch north to Chester are being warned of potential flooding after Storm Dennis.

The Environment Agency has published advice on its website regarding the area after the latest storm to hit UK shores.

It is warning residents that while the worst of the water levels may have have passed, they are to remain vigilant.

A spokesman said: "River levels remain high at the Farndon river gauge and current forecasts suggest that they are likely to rise further tonight and into tomorrow morning as a result of heavy rain from Storm Dennis.

"We expect levels to peak at by 7am on Monday, and levels are likely to remain high into next week.

"Consequently, we believe there remains a possibility of flooding to low lying land and roads around the River Dee at Shocklach, Farndon, Handley, Lower Kinnerton, Chester, and Puddington."

Residents around Wem are also being warned of potential flooding.

Meanwhile, Bangor-on-Dee Races has already called off Tuesday's racecard because of flooding around the area, while a spokesman for the North Wales Fire and Rescue Service confirmed they were called shortly after 11.20pm to reports of a car stuck in water in Bangor-on-Dee.

Two people were rescued.
