Carlton Ferry Lane, in Collingham, collapsed for the second time in two years on October 23, 2023, and left residents stranded during the Storm Babet floods, which happened again this week as the road hasn't been repaired.

Residents have been using a back road, Northcroft Lane, to access the village. However, they are now stuck in their homes once again with the lane now also flooded due to rising water levels caused by Storm Henk.

The River Trent and The Fleet have flooded again due to the water levels.

The residents affected by the flooding have been given advice.

A Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said: “We would like to thank the local community for their support and J D Nicholson for providing refreshments.”
