Forecasters are warning of “very wet and very windy” weather across Derbyshire today.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the county and urged the public to take extra care.

A spokesman said: “A spell of very wet and very windy weather is expected to move west to east across many parts of the UK – including Derbyshire – during Thursday.

“Coming so soon after the heavy rain which fell in places earlier in the week this is likely to provoke further issues with flooding.

“Additionally, winds will gust to 50 to 60 mph in places, and could exceed 70 mph in some exposed western areas.

“In view of the wind and rain combination, the public should be prepared for some transport disruption.

“The public is advised to take extra care.”
