Residents in a Nottinghamshire village have created their own flood defences as flooding struck for the second time this month.

The villagers of Rolleston worked throughout the night to create a clay bank outside of their homes.

Many said they were only just clearing up after their homes were damaged by flooding three weeks ago.
