Officials had initially called a precautionary inspection for 8am on Christmas Day after the Environment Agency warned of the possibility of flooding in the nearby Alconbury and Ellington Brooks.

However, clerk of the course Sulekha Varma has decided to bring forward that check to today with water levels continuing to rise.

She said: "Flooding is probably imminent and we just need to wait for it to happen now.

"It's not looking good. The water levels are continuing to rise."
