Meanwhile, Derbyshire fire and rescue service are urging motorists to be extra cautious throughout the county;
DO NOT IGNORE ROAD CLOSED SIGNS: No matter what type of car your drive, just 60cm of flood water will float your car. Just 30cm of flowing water could be enough to move your car & Just 15cm of fast-flowing water can knock you off your feet. #Floodsafety #Staysafe pic.twitter.com/qyuQZrgTe2— Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service (@DerbyshireFRS) November 8, 2019
