WEATHER UPDATE: Is there a silver lining in the clouds over Northumberland?

No news is good news for a county that is saturated after several days of persistent rain.

The Met Office has lifted its yellow and, at times, amber weather warnings for Northumberland and there are currently none in place.

While it is still raining from leaden skies and river levels remain high, as seen in this video of the swollen and fast-moving River Aln at Lesbury and Foxton, there are currently no weather alerts for the county in the next five days.

The Environment Agency still has four of five red flood warnings issued for Northumberland this morning: River Coquet at Felton; the Coquet at Lower Stanners, Warkworth; the Coquet at Brinkburn and Weldon; ; River Pont at Kirkley Mill, Darras Hall and Prestwick Carr.

The flood warning on the River Font at Netherwitton and Longshaws Mill was lifted earlier this afternoon.

There are nine flood alerts in place for Northumberland: Upper Coquet; Lower Coquet; north Northumberland coastal rivers; Rede; Till; Tweed South Bank; Wansbeck; North Tyne and Pont and Blyth.
