Maidstone Subways Closed After Rising Water Levels

Recent heavy rain in Kent is causing problems in Maidstone Town Centre as the River Medway has burst its banks.

The subways and towpaths in the town centre have been closed to the public as the rising water level has made them impassable.

The council are advising people to avoid the river and to not go near it, as the water level is extremely high and is running fast through the town.

Maidstone has always suffered with the River Medway flooding the subways in the town and this year is no different, especially after Storm Bella. With more rain forecast late this week, it would seem that the river levels could rise even higher.

The village of Yalding has once again flooded affecting the usual areas and floodplains between Teapot Island and the Lees and also Little Venice.
