The 'be prepared' warnings issued by the Environment Agency still apply to the Lower River Coquet, in the Felton area; the River Rede at Otterburn; and the south bank of the River Tweed between Norham and Coldstream.

The Agency says: "The Lower Coquet is expected to remain high through this morning (Sunday, December 27). This is in response to persistant rainfall seen overnight on December 26. Drier conditions are expected during Sunday and Monday. We are continuing to monitor the situation and have field teams on standby and ready to respond. We will issue flood warnings if required. This message will be updated or removed by midday on Sunday, December 27, or earlier if the situation changes significantly."

Similar messages apply to the River Rede and River Tweed.

Other alerts on the coastal rivers of north Northumberland, including the River Aln; Upper River Coquet at Rothbury; River Coquet at Brinkburn and Weldon; River Till and tributaries, north of Wooler; River Wansbeck through Morpeth; River North Tyne at Chollerford; River Tyne at Wellbank Riverside, Corbridge; and River Tyne at Bywell and Prudhoe have all been removed.
