Drone pictures and video reveal extent of flooding around Newark with more rain predicted in the coming days

Drone footage shows the extent of flooding from the River Trent around Newark, with more rain predicted in the days to come.

The aftermath of Storm Dennis continues to cause misery for many in Newark and Sherwood.

In Newark itself, Tolney Lane residents were advised to evacuate and many have moved caravans on to the district council's lorry park.


The footage was taken by Richard Mitchell who is managing director of Drone Support Services.

It shows fields like seas either side of the A46 bypass and the threat posed to Tolney Lane.

"We were badly affected last year in Wainfleet and so we have been on red alert just like the poor people next to the River Trent."

"I wanted some footage to show the Lincolnshire Resilient Communities Forum, of which I am a member, so they could see for themselves how useful and immediate the aerial footage is.

"I am a volunteer search and rescue with the drone so my footage will be used for training people in rural villages in the future.
