Video: Rising water level on the River Trent in West Bridgford and Nottingham

A video taken at 8 am on Sunday 22 October shows the fast-flowing river and water levels rising on the banks.

Record river levels on the River Derwent are likely to lead to further peaks in water levels along the Trent Valley over the next 24 to 48 hours causing further risk of flooding in communities along the Trent Valley.  This will likely lead to risk of flooding to properties and roads.
