“We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are patrolling watercourses in the area.

They added: “Please avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses”.

The Ferry Boat Inn said it’s ‘business as usual’, despite the rising water levels.

A staff member told Gedling Eye: “We have no plans to close. We have been open all week when there has been flooding and we plan to stay open.”
