Storm Jorge is set to bring strong wind and heavy rain, with flood warnings in place at Collingham, Carlton-on-Trent and Girton




The Environment Agency has issued new flood warnings near Newark as Storm Jorge is set to hit this weekend.

River levels are high at the Torksey river gauge as a result of high tides coinciding with high river levels, with Collingham, Girton and Carlton-on-Trent the areas most at risk.

There is also a flood alert near Burton Joyce, with areas most at risk near to the River Trent, including the B6540 Tamworth Road at Sawley, Thrumpton Lane at Thrumpton, the Queens Drive Park and Ride, Stoke Lane at Stoke Bardolph, the Caythorpe to Hoveringham road, and cellars of low-lying properties at Cavendish Bridge.

"Our incident response staff are patrolling watercourses in the area. Please move possessions and valuables off the ground or to safety, and avoid contact with flood water."

The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning of strong winds from midday tomorrow (Saturday) until midday on Sunday.
