A month’s worth of rain fell on the area on Friday as the River Derwent burst its banks. As a result, roads are closed and homes and businesses have been flooded. It comes as Derbyshire Police confirmed that a woman has died during the devastating floods.
They confirmed she was recovered from flood water in Darley Dale after officers were called in the early hours of the morning.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote on Twitter: “Awful to see the terrible flooding across the North of England.
“Thank you to the emergency staff & volunteers helping families through this difficult time.”
New footage on social media has shown the flood water is still dangerous next to the river.
