Residents in a number of Nottinghamshire villages are being advised to monitor flooding risk and prepare to evacuate.

Water levels on the River Trent are continuing to rise which could lead to a number of homes being affected in Gunthorpe, Shelford, Shelford Manor, Caythorpe, Thrumpton, Hoveringham, Trent Lock, and Tolney Lane in Newark.

Roads in each of the areas could also be affected, including the A6097 at Gunthorpe Bridge, which could impact on people's ability to seek refuge.

People who decide to leave their homes who cannot stay with friends or relatives are advised to check with their local councils for details of rest centres.

The advice comes following Environment Agency flood warnings to people in the areas to take action due to the risk of flooding.

Detective Superintendent Mike Allen, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We would urge people to continue to watch the flood warnings from the Environment Agency, monitor the situation locally and be prepared to evacuate.

"Current flood predictions from the Environment Agency show there is a risk to homes in a number of villages. It is a constantly changing picture so we would urge people to be prepared and take action as soon as is necessary."
