 Flooding closes road in Stoke Bardolph

A road has been closed in Stoke Bardolph following flooding caused by last night’s Storm Christoph.

Police and Gedling Borough Council have issued alerts that Stoke Lane, from the Ferry Boat towards Burton Joyce has been temporarily closed.

The road has been closed after the River Trent has burst its banks.

A spokesman for Gedling Borough Council said: “Please take care if you are nearby and expect delays and diversions in this area.”

A flood alert remains in place across the area.

The Environment Agency’s warning read: “River levels are forecast to rise at the Colwick river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of property, roads and farmland is expected.

“Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads around Stoke Bardolph.

Further light rainfall is forecast over the next 48 hours. We expect river levels to rise for the next 1-2 days.

“We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are patrolling watercourses in the area and liaising with emergency services. Please avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses and avoid contact with flood water. “
