The River Trent Levels are currently receding and there are no immediate risks of further flooding on the non-tidal Trent. To date around 200 properties have been flooded in Nottinghamshire. The Tidal Trent is the area of concern at present with the community of Girton (27 properties) at risk of being cut-off. Measures are in place to support the community through the County Council’s Emergency Planning and Adult Social Care teams working with Newark and Sherwood District colleagues. This community has a good level of resilience with local defences in place .
There is a closure being put in place on the A1133 through Collingham from the A46 to A57 junctions as water is over topping the road. A diversion is being put in place which follows the A46 and A57.
Heavy rain is expected to pass through the County from mid-day tomorrow with some concern that with high Trent levels that localised flooding could take place. The risk of this is less than was predicted earlier in the week as non-tidal Trent river levels are falling and
the weather predicted is less severe than previously thought.
