Flooding in Maidstone
The Environment Agency has issued flood alerts for the
River Medway and other parts of Kent after heavy
rainfall on Sunday and overnight into Monday.
In Kent, there are flood warnings for the River Beult, from
Pluckley and Bethersden to Hampstead Lock, and for parts of the
River Darent in Dartford.
Flood watches, including parts of the Medway and Darent, have
also been set up.
In Maidstone, the river has burst its banks leaving tow
paths and riverside benches submerged in flood water.
