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.
