The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Thursday




A yellow warning of rain for the Newark and surrounding area has been issued by the Met Office.

This means that there is a risk of further heavy rain across areas which are experiencing ongoing flooding, which includes Newark and other areas in the East Midlands.

The warning comes after a week of flooding caused by heavy rain.

The Met Office has warned that the yellow warning means there is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings, and a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.

Where flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services, as well as difficult driving conditions and some road closures, with some communities being cut off by flooded roads.
