It comes after seven flood alerts were announced across Kent this morning following heavy rain across Kent yesterday.

The Environment Agency is concerned about areas near the Upper River Stour, rivers on the Isle of Sheppey and the Darent Catchment.

Swalecliffe and West Brooks, the River Bourne, Upper River Medway and Eden are also at risk of flooding.

The alert means flooding is possible and homeowners and businesses in the area should be alert.

But, after the heavy rain, those living in Kent should now swap their wellies for winter boots.

Weather experts are predicting temperatures will only hit a maximum of 8C today, after a frosty start.

Tonight temperatures could plummet to -3C.
