Flood alert issued for parts of River Trent and Maun after impacts of storm Franklin
Flood alerts remain in place for various areas in Newark in Sherwood today as Storm Franklin brings heavy rain.
River levels have risen at the Colwick river gauge as a result of persistent heavy rainfall with flooding expected to continue.
Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads, including communities near to the River Trent, the Queens Drive Park and Ride, and Stoke Lane at Stoke Bardolph, Caythorpe to Hoveringham, and cellars of low-lying properties at Cavendish Bridge.
Further light rainfall is forecast over the next two hours.
The government is advising residents plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers and using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses which may be flooded.
A flood alert is also in place for the River Maun, with areas most at risk including low-lying agricultural land and roads around Mansfield, the Sherwood Forest Caravan Park at Clipstone, Edwinstowe, Ollerton, Whitewater Lane at Whitewater Bridge and West Drayton.
A warning for the flooding of Trent Tributaries in Nottinghamshire, including the River Greet, Potwell Dyke, Carr Dyke, Dover Beck, Cocker Beck, Thurgarton Beck and Fairham Brook, was removed this morning.
