Chelmsford City Council have warned: "If you're out and about in one of Chelmsford's green spaces close to a river, please take care over the next day or two.
"The Rivers Chelmer, Can and Wid are all higher than usual, and some footpaths and cycle tracks close to the river banks will be impassable.
"This particularly applies to the river valley flood meadows in the Bunny Walks, Admirals Park and West Park.
If you're out walking a dog in the early morning or after dark, please avoid areas of flood water and keep your dog on a lead in these locations."
Uniformed police officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) have been out on foot patrol and in marked police cars to deter potential thieves and on the lookout for suspicious behaviour.
The Clarets have started 2024 with a bang! The Clarets hosted Braintree Town at Melbourne Stadium, Chelmsford on New Year's day.
