Picking up the pieces after flooding

Homes and businesses across the East Midlands have begun to pick up the pieces after more flash flooding hit the region.

The true cost of the damage is still unclear but it's estimated to run into millions of pounds.

With children now on school holidays, some families have found themselves out of their homes with months of repair ahead of them. Sally Lockwood reports.

Flash floods to cost pub estimated £100,000

The Grosvenor Pub in Nottingham is continuing its clean up operation after flash flooding hit parts of the region.

The clear up operation is estimated to cost £100,000.

It is the third time the pub has flooded in the last five years. It took just six minutes for the pub to become entirely flooded.

Despite having flood defence barriers, the water was coming in quicker than people could evacuate the building and they could not get them up in time.

The Grosvenor say they are hoping to re-open next week.
