Elsewhere in Derbyshire, Darley Bridge has been closed to traffic because of the adverse weather.

The Met Office issues an amber weather warning for rain today, which means there is a danger of flooding and disruption cased by the downpour.

The office also warned: “Homes and businesses are likely to be flooded, causing damage to some buildings. Fast flowing or deep floodwater is likely, causing danger to life.”
