Multiple flood alerts are in place for areas across Wiltshire as Storm Isha batters the county. 

Winds of over 50mph and heavy rain is forecast for the Wiltshire and Swindon area.

The Government issued a new flood warning at 12.46pm today (Sunday, January 21).

It stated that flooding is possible along rivers just south of Swindon.

The alert is in place for rivers that go through both Marlborough and Avebury as well as Yatesbury which is just east of Calne.

This comes just weeks after severe flooding in Marlborough left the town underwater.

There is also a flood alert in place which covers areas in the south east of the county.

This flood alert was first issued at 4.44pm on Friday, January 19 and is for groundwater flooding in the Salisbury Plain area.

The area in question where this alert has been issued covers parts of Devizes.

There are also flood alerts just north of Swindon in South Cerney and Cirencester.

A Government spokesperson said: “We are monitoring the situation.

"Avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and be aware of floodwater remaining on the flood plain as river levels recede.”
