Flood warnings for Chesterfield as heavy rain predicted

Flood warnings have been issued for Chesterfield this weekend as forecasts suggest a band of heavy and persistent rain will pass over northern parts of the country from Saturday afternoon into Sunday, posing risks of surface water flooding and the potential for flooding from rivers.

The Environment Agency are expecting areas around the Peak District to be the most affected, and are checking flood defences and making preparations to safeguard against potential flooding as much as possible, as well as monitoring the situation closely along with the Met Office and local Councils.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Environment Agency if you are concerned about river flooding or if you feel you may be at risk, and you can also visit the Environment Agency’s website and sign up for the free Flood Warnings service where available. This can be done by calling the Environment Agency Floodline on 0845 988 1188.
