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.

Two more flood warnings for the Midlands

The Environment Agency has issued a further two flood warnings for the Midlands, this time in Warwickshire.

The warnings are for the River Anker at Mancetter, Witherley and Atherstone, as well as the same river further North at Grendon and Bradley Green.

Flood warnings mean flooding is expected and people should take immediate action. There are now four flood warnings in the Midlands.

There is also one new flood alert, for the River Trent in Derbyshire between Newton Solney and Castle Donington.

Flood alerts advise people to be prepared for possible flooding.
