According to the Environment Agency the high tide is a result of high fluvial flows.

This means that although there is no risk of flooding to homes - residents could see flooding on low-lying roads and footpaths.

Forecasters have also predicted that the river flow at Teddington Weir is expected to remain high for the next couple of days.

The Environment Agency have advised that residents can prepare for the risk of flooding by keeping a bag that includes medicines and insurance documents.
