George and Amal Clooney’s £12m Berkshire mansion is on high alert against massive flooding – amid warnings of wet weather.

The 61-year-old Ticket to Paradise star and 44-year-old wife of a lawyer first moved to Sonning Country Pile in 2016.

However, the property has been plagued with flooding problems due to its proximity to a river with frequent levee breaches.

And before the couple could move in, they had to undergo an intensive 18-month renovation when it was previously hit by water.
