The River Wharfe at Tadcaster has peaked tonight – and the River Ouse will peak tomorrow morning below 5m.

And there are now 11 flood warnings in place in and around York.

Those are the headlines as we close our live flooding blog tonight.

This is what a spokesperson for the Environment Agency told us:

We know the devastating impact that flooding can have, which is why protecting people and communities is our top priority. 

Water levels in the upper catchments are going down and the picture is improving in these areas. The river level in Tadcaster has now peaked.

Although predictions can change as the forecasting model updates, we expect the Ouse to be at its highest level mid-morning on Tuesday. We have now issued all planned flood warnings and don’t anticipate that we will need to issue any further warnings at this stage.

People should remain vigilant and take extreme care. We encourage people to check their flood risk online and keep up to date, follow @EnvAgency on Twitter for the latest updates or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188.

By 8pm tonight, the Ouse in York was at 4.38m. It is now predicted to peak at 4.80m at 9.45am tomorrow (Tuesday).

These are the 11 flood warnings:
