Roads closed in Derbyshire as more rain hits the county

Flood alerts are in place for parts of Derbyshire this afternoon as more rain has fallen in our area today.

The environment agency still have a flood alert in place around Ashford-In-The-Water near Bakewell around the river Wye. 

While the Met Office has warned we can expect around 45 millimetres of rain today in total.

A Derbyshire Police spokesperson said: "If you come across a road that is closed, or you are unsure if it is safe to pass through it, it is imperative that should you come across flood water on your journey that you do not drive through it, turn back and find an alternative route.

"Where roads have been closed, respect those signs, do not move them and do not attempt to travel on that route.

"Where minor flooding has taken place and the water level is low and clearly passable, drive through at low speeds. The wave caused by a vehicle driving through water can cause water to be forced into properties causing them to be flooded where there would otherwise not be a problem."
