River Wye in Derbyshire

Flood Alert

River levels have risen at the Ashford and Buxton river gauges as a result of recent heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible today from lunchtime onwards. Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including Ashford and Bakewell areas, and the A6 at Buxton. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are patrolling watercourses in the area. Please plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated this evening, Thursday 20/02/20, or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 11:02am, Thursday 20th February.
