The Government has announced an amber flood warning for parts of the River Trent.
With prolonged rain expected to continue over the next few days, parts of the River Trent in the area are now at risk of flooding.
The main areas of concern are the tributaries of the Trent - the River Greet, Potwell Dyke, Dover Beck, Cocker Beck and Thurgarton Beck - as shown in the map below.
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, and river levels are rising at the Colston Bassett river gauge as a result of persistent heavy rainfall.
Rufford Lane, between A614 Old Rufford Road and Bescar Lane, Wellow, is currently closed both ways as the road has been deemed unsafe to pass due to flooding on the ford.
A yellow warning of heavy rain for the East Midlands has already caused flooding and disruption to transport (you can read more on this here), as some areas have had two inches of rain falling in one day, the equivalent of a month's rain for June.
