This is what York was waking up to this morning – the river is high, but only flooding the riverside.
Fears that we were in for a record-breaking flood are receding this morning.
The latest forecast sees the Ouse peaking at 5.22m at noon tomorrow. That’s high but less than earlier predictions, which suggested the levels could exceed the 5.4m record set in 2000.
The King’s and Queen’s Staiths are submerged as usual.
Pumping stations and sandbags are in place at the entrance to Tower Gardens and at the end of Peckitt Street.
In Tower Gardens, the water is over some of the footpaths but not yet up to the boundary walls.
Rowntree Park is closed today because of the floods.
Away from the riverside, York was operating normally. Roads are unaffected in the city centre.
There are now five flood warnings around York – see below.
