Communities on the River Trent’s banks, including Fiskerton, Farndon and Bleasby, remain flooded
Many communities on the banks of the River Trent are still experiencing flooding.
Fiskerton, Farndon and Rolleston are among those which are still suffering the affects of Storm Babet, which brought heavy rain to the region.
Days after the storm passed over the area the River Trent’s water levels remain high and river and surface water floods remain.
In Farndon, Wyke Lane and the area around The Riverside pub are particularly affected, with water covering the entire road and surrounding ground.
Wyke Lane remains closed to traffic, according to Nottinghamshire County Council’s road closure list.
On the other side of the Trent, Rolleston Road in Fiskerton remains flooded, and Fiskerton Road in Bleasby has a lot of standing water.
Rolleston Road is closed to traffic, and while Fiskerton Road is not listed as closed, drivers should take particular care when travelling and avoid floodwater where possible.
Nottinghamshire Police earlier issued a plea for motorists to avoid flooded roads in other communities, including Holme and Girton.
Just 30cm of water is enough to move a vehicle.
