A flood alert from the Environment Agency is in force for the Tidal Thames riverside from Putney Bridge to Teddington Weir.

It reads: "River levels are expected to be high as a result of spring tides. The forecast high tide at Richmond will be 4.85m at 6am on 01/04/21 and 4.71m at 6.30pm.

"Flooding of low-lying roads and footpaths is expected, which may exist for one to two hours either side of high tide. Flooding of properties is not expected.

"We believe there is a possibility of flooding for Putney Embankment (SW15), Chiswick Mall and Strand on the Green (W4), Thames Bank at Mortlake (SW14), Ranelagh Drive (TW1), Friars Lane and Water Lane (TW9), Riverside and The Embankment at Twickenham, and the Towpath below Teddington Lock.

"Astronomical tide levels are peaking. The river flow at Teddington Weir is normal for this time of year at 46 cubic metres per second and is steady.

"We anticipate the flows to remain normal for the next 5 days. We are closely monitoring the situation."
