for Flood alert in force now Lower Derwent in Derbyshire

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Levels on the Lower River Derwent remain high but are beginning to fall. Further scattered showers are possible across the upper catchment this evening, with the remainder of the area becoming dry. As a result, flooding of low lying agricultural land and roads around Church Wilne, Draycott, and Wilne Lane between Draycott and Sawley will continue. We urge residents to prepare, remain vigilant and avoid walking and driving through flood water. We are closely monitoring the situation. We will endeavour to update this message in approximately 12 hours or if the situation changes.
