for Flood alert in force now Lower Derwent in Derbyshire

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels remain high at the Matlock and Church Wilne river gauges as a result of persistent heavy rainfall. Consequently, the risk of flooding remains. Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including Darley Dale, Cromford, Matlock, Whatstandwell, Belper, Duffield, Milford, Little Eaton, the B5057 between Darley Bridge and Two Dales Road, Church Wilne, Draycot, and Wilne Lane between Draycot and Sawley. Further light rainfall with isolated heavy showers is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high throughout today, 15/11/19. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff have been patrolling watercourses in the area. Please avoid contact with flood water and plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers. This message will be updated this afternoon, 15/11/19, or as the situation changes.
