A flood alert issued to villages in Gedling borough near the River Trent has now been lifted.

The Environment Agency had warned those living in Burton Joyce, Colwick and areas of Netherfield that flooding was possible after river levels continued to rise after recent heavy rainfall.

That warning has now been lifted.
