Flood alerts in place after rain batters Gedling borough


Flood alerts are in place for several areas across Gedling borough.

The Environment Agency says they expect river levels to rise as a result of persistent heavy rainfall.

They say flooding of roads and farmland is possible between 9:00am and 13:00pm today.

An EA spokesman said: “Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land, roads and footpaths. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 12 hours. River levels may begin to rise at 9:00am this morning as a consequence of intense rainfall.
