Flood warning for drivers as downpour across Notts continues
NOTTS drivers are being warned to take care today after a night of heavy rain left standing water on roads around the county.
Police said there was also localised flooding being reported in Lowdham, Woodborough and Lambley.
The Met Office has a 'be aware' yellow weather warning in place for the county and says the rain is likely to continue into the middle of Thursday afternoon.
Flood alerts, meaning flooding is possible, have been issued by the Environment Agency for the River Leen including Day Brook and for tributaries of the Trent including the River Greet, Potwell Dyke, Carr Dyke, Dover Beck, Cocker Beck, Thurgarton Beck, Fairham Brook and others.

A Notts Police spokesman said: "We'd urge everyone to take extreme caution while driving. The main complicating factor is the surrounding ground of some roads is completely saturated and there's nowhere for the water to run off."
