River Ancholme from Brigg to South Ferriby remains on flood alert
A flood alert remains in place this morning (Tuesday Nov 27) on the River Ancholme including Brigg and South Ferriby.
The alert - ranked lower than a flood warning - applies along the river from Bishopbridge and Brand Wharf.
The Environment Agency suggests tributaries may also affect the parishes of Waddingham, Redbourne and Hibaldstow.
The Old River Ancholme near Brigg town centre at 8am today had dropped by several inches since yesterday morning when a full flood warning was operating.

A warning means the Environment Agency expects flooding to occur.
The main car park at Ancholme Leisure Centre in Scawby Brook, which was entirely flooded by the New River Ancholme yesterday, was almost clear this morning.
However, the nearby former Brigg sugar factory sportsground, off Scawby Road, remained half-covered in flood water.
More than 200 flood warnings currently operate across the UK.
