WATER levels may have reduced over the weekend, but parts of the River Arun remain at risk of flooding.

The Environment Agency said it would be monitoring the situation at Pulborough, Arundel and Houghton Bridge, where river levels remained high.

The EA has issued flood alerts for these areas, which means people living or travelling to or from them should be prepared for the possibility of flooding.

However, tides are falling at Arundel and Houghton Bridge, and the EA said it was not expecting flooding in these areas.

In Pulborough the EA is still using its pumps to reduce water levels.

Levels will remain high for most of the week, and it will not be until mid week that river levels fall significantly.
