The Environment Agency will be putting the floodgates at Torksey around midday on Sunday. This is due to rising tides and rainfall forecast in Derbyshire over the weekend.

It is likely the gates will remain on until the middle of next week, we will update the notice once we have confirmation.

Boaters are asked not to travel along the Navigation until the flood gates have been taken off.
