The heavy rain and winds are continuing to have an impact and cause disruption in Derbyshire this evening.

A number of flood warnings are in place for the county, and we would encourage residents to check if they are likely to be affected through the gov.uk website here: https://check-for-flooding.service.gov.uk/alerts-and-warnings

At this time (Sunday 20 February, 10.20pm) Derbyshire County Council have closed the following roads:

  • Hassop Road (B6001), Hassop
  • A6 at Rowsley.
  • A57 Ladybower to Glossop- including Woolley Bridge
  • Darley Bridge at the B5057
  • A6 at Buxton.

Additional local roads may be closed due to localised surface water flooding, and you can find up-to-date information on the Derbyshire County Council website, here: https://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/transport-roads/roads-traffic/road-maintenance/closures/weather-related-road-closures.aspx

Where roads are closed do not move signs or attempt to use these routes. You could endanger yourself and the lives of the emergency services responders should you get into difficulty.

If you come across flood water do not enter on foot or in a vehicle.

We are reminding residents who to call in the event of storm-related incidents:

  • Flooding or a fallen tree on a road or property where life is in danger, or fallen tree onto property where life is in danger – call 999
  • Flooding or fallen tree on a road, not endangering life – call your local authority
  • General flooding – wait for the water to subside and do not enter flood water.
  • Unsafe structure overhanging a public highway – Fire and Rescue Service via 999

We are currently experiencing a high demand on our 101 non-emergency number, and we would encourage people to consider contacting us through our digital methods where possible if the matter is not urgent.

Remember, you should always call 999 in an emergency, immediate threat to life or property.
