for Flood alert in force now Upper River Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck and Derwent Water

Flooding is possible - be prepared

A Flood Alert remains in place as Derwent Water Lake level has risen as a result of heavy rainfall yesterday and overnight. Consequently, flooding of low lying land and footpaths around the lake's edge is expected. The lake level has now peaked but is receding slowly. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low lying footpaths around Derwent Water Lake. This message will be updated in 8 hours, or as the situation changes.
