A number of flood warnings are currently in place around Derby, which means we need to be on flood alert over the coming days.

For us here in Derby, this is likely to mean a lot of surface water (if the rain continues) and high River Derwent levels. We are well prepared, and are closely working with our partners to monitor the situation – we will issue updates as needed, should the situation change. All Emergency Services are making preparations.

Officers have been able to proactively plan, distribute sandbags, and look at pinch points in the city to try to minimise impact.
