The Royal Parks are advising residents to avoid Dukes Head Passage Way following reports of flooding near Bushy Park and surrounding areas.

Jeweller Charlotte Bezzant took to social media to raise concerns with The Royal Parks after her mother sent her images of overflown water at Hampton Pool.

She tweeted: "URGENT @theroyalparks how is Longford River management today as this I assume is a Longford overflow at @HamptonPool today.

"Having slight panic as our properties back on to it."

According to residents Teddington Harbour has also been hit with overflowing water that is thought to be a direct result of the recent heavy rainfall.

One social media user by the name of @TW11Harbour on Twitter said: "435 m3/sec at @TW11Harbour this morning #Teddington #thames."

The news comes following the Environmental Agency issues a Flood Alert warning in Richmond on December 22.

And, despite The Royal Parks not owning Hampton Pool directly a Spokesperson released a statement this afternoon which said: "Recent heavy rainfall has led to rising water levels in the Longford River, which has caused localised flooding in a small area of Bushy Park.

"The situation is now under control, however Duke’s Head Passage Way is closed until further notice."
