Coronavirus (COVID-19): how we're protecting our flood warning service

for Flood alert in force now River Trent in Derbyshire

Flooding is possible - be prepared

River levels remain high but are beginning to fall at the Shardlow and Willington river gauges as a result of Storm Christoph. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is expected to continue today, 25/01/2021. Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including Willington, Barrow upon Trent, Swarkestone, Bargate Lane, and the access roads to Willington Meadows, the Twyford Village access road, Church Lane at Barrow, and Ingleby Lane. No further significant rainfall is forecast. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 26/01/2021, or as the situation changes.
