River Devon and Smite in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire

Flood alert

River levels remain high at the Colston Bassett river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland continues. Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads along the River Smite. Church Gate and Bunnison Lane in Colston Bassett could be impassable, with potentially dangerous depths of flood water. Areas around the River Devon could also be affected at Easthorpe, Bottesford, Belvoir Lane and the Woolsthorpe to Belvoir road in Woolsthorpe, Church Lane and Main Street in Muston. We expect river levels to remain high until tomorrow, 15/01/21. A drier day is forecast tomorrow, Friday 15/01/21, with further rain on Saturday 16/01/21. Please avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are closely monitoring the situation. This message will be updated daily at 09:00, or as the situation changes.
