Police are carrying out high visibility patrols in neighbourhoods affected by flooding in Worksop.

Dozens of properties remain evacuated following the flooding from the River Ryton after heavy rainfall on Thursday night.

Inspector Neil Bellamy said: "It has been a very upsetting time for a number of families in Worksop who have had to leave their homes.

"However we would like to reassure people that we will continue to carry out patrols in the area to ensure people and properties are safe."

County and district councils have also been offering door to door advice to residents in worst affected areas to respond to their concerns following the flooding.  

If you have any concerns, please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call 999 to report an emergency or a crime in progress.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
