A councillor has addressed a flooding issue that is having a detrimental effect on a community.

"Access to the village is only possible by 4 x 4.

"We have been working with various agencies including Newark and Sherwood District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council who are on the ground.

"They are making residents aware of the issue and offering support to the Holme community which has been temporarily cut off.

"Over 40 houses are impacted by the flooding, which hasn’t happened on this scale in nearly 23 years.

"I am pleased that all agencies are working together to support this wonderful village.

"Although we are not entirely sure how long this will last – I am confident that all residents are receiving the support they need.

"I would ask non-residents to avoid this area entirely so that we can focus support on residents.”
