“We are ready to move with men and machines.”

That’s the message from Witham Fourth District Internal Drainage Board, which says it is on standby should flooding concerns escalate.

Chief executive Peter Bateson said: “We are ready to move with men and machines. We also have 1,000 sandbags if they are needed.”

He said Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board is also on standby.

Mr Bateson said his team would be available throughout the night if action was needed.
