Over 100 flood warnings in place in North

The Environment Agency is working to reduce the impact of persistent rain this week, which has led to surface water and river flooding in parts of Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Greater Manchester, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire.

River levels have risen considerably and more flooding of properties and roads is expected. Elsewhere Northern Rail has said it expected “severe disruption” to its network. Elsewhere, transport difficulties continue amid road closures.

South Yorkshire Police said there had been “significant issues” in Doncaster, with Bentley, Toll Bar and Scawthorpe the worst affected areas, and the Environment Agency had three severe 'danger to life' warnings in place relating to the river at Kirk Bramwith, South Bramwith and Willow Bridge.

As at 13:00 on 8th November, there are six severe flood warnings in South Yorkshire with a threat to life, 75 flood warnings and 103 flood alerts.
