Anxious Colnbrook residents face a second stressful weekend - after a major flood warning from the Environment Agency on Friday led to a knife edge situation last Saturday.

The Friday warning had stated that heavy rain falling in the Colne Brook catchment area had put properties and low lying areas around Colnbrook and nearby Horton and Wraysbury at immediate risk

Environment Agency staff operated the sluice gates at Horton Mill in a bid to reduce river levels.

By Saturday afternoon half to three quarters of Colnbrook's Pippins and Albany Parks were under water.

The Slough branch of Khalsa Aid delivered 20 tons of sand - as sandbags were prepared for where they might be needed if houses were threatened.

The worst affected were about eight houses in Cottesbrooke Close which saw water from their front and back gardens reach under the floorboards.

Myrtle Close and Fawsley Close residents also saw their gardens submerged.

Teams from Slough Borough Council had staff in Colnbrook helping residents to protect their properties with sandbags or other flood defences.

They also assisted with the pumping of water away from flood prone areas, which has to be tankered away.

As the heavy rain eased off the pressure subsided.

But on Wednesday houses in Cottesbrooke Close still had seven inches of water under their floorboards with electricity supply threatened.

Colnbrook Parish councillor Puja Bedi, who is chairman of Colnbrook Flood Action Group said: "We still have flooding and don't quite know way. We have had a Zoom meeting with the Environment Agency and Slough Council and have sandbags at the ready to help Cottesbrooke Close Friday and Saturday .

"It only took four millimetres of water last weekend to bring this much flooding and they are talking about 10 this weekend.

"But you can never tell. It was supposed to rain today and it didn't."
