UPDATE: Flooding expected to peak between 6pm and 9pm tonight
Nottinghamshire Police are warning people in the Newark area to heed local flooding advice, as officers continue to monitor rising river levels following the recent wet weather.
The A617 Kelham Bridge has been closed after the River Trent burst its banks, flooding nearby roads. The road remains closed between The Fox Inn public house at Kelham and the A617 junction with the A46 and A616 Newark Cattle Market island.
Police officers are also continuing to work closely with colleagues from Newark and Sherwood District Council to monitor the impact on the Tolney Lane travellers’ site at Newark, where occupants are being supported with river levels expected to rise, peaking at some time between 6pm and 9pm this evening.
