Belper Floods 2019: In Pictures

It's been a tough week for parts of Derbyshire, particularly Matlock. As a Belper girl, I thought I'd share some images of the aftermath of the flooding in my hometown.

These images were taken on the Saturday (9th November), the day after the flooding hit. As you can see, the water levels had subsided enough for Bridge Foot to be reopened and for the River Gardens to be generally accessible too.

As you may or may not know, more heavy rain is expected at the end of this week. Most of Derbyshire has a yellow weather warning for rain on Thursday. (Find your local forecast here.) This may exacerbate existing problems in flood-hit areas.

You can find up to date flood warnings on this website. Information on what to do if you've been flooded can be found here. Plus extra information that you may find useful if you've been affected can be found on the Derbyshire County Council website here.

Stay safe, Derbyshire.
