On Sunday, a spokesperson for Nottinghamshire County Council said: "The A617 will remain closed as water is running off into an adjacent field.

"Please use an alternative route.

"There is a lot of water running off the fields causing flooding and standing water.

"Do not ignore road closure signs."
