River Idle in Nottinghamshire

Flood alert

River levels remain high at the Ordsall 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 including Goose Moor Lane at Ordsall, and farmlands in the Gamston and Eaton areas. Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point. Further significant rainfall is expected for the next few days and consequently we expect river levels to remain high. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are patrolling watercourses in the area. 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, or as the situation changes.
