Three more flood warnings have been issued in Collingham, Girton and Carlton-on-Trent




The Environment Agency has issued three red flood warnings in the Newark area.

Due to rising river levels at the Torksey river gauge as a result of high spring tides coinciding with high river levels, with flooding possible until around 1pm.

The areas most at risk are Girton (including Green and Trent Lanes), Collingham (including Ferry Lane Farm, Westfield Farm and Wharf Bungalow area) and Carlton-on-Trent.

A spokesman said: "We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are patrolling watercourses in the area.

"Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid contact with flood water."

A further amber warning has been issued due to high river levels at the Colwick river gauge as a result of rainfall earlier in the week, with further rainfall forecast today.

Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including communities near to the River Trent, the Queens Drive Park and Ride and Stoke Lane at Stoke Bardolph, Caythorpe to Hoveringham road, and cellars of low-lying properties at Cavendish Bridge.
